Many thanks to organizer, Jim Cocks, for once again building community spirit with the Christmas Eve sleigh ride. Best Christmas wishes to Tom Sauve and family for arranging Santa’s surprise visit to distribute candy canes at the Sunnymede stop. Thank you to Kelly Egan, Alex Smith, Adrian Bradley, and Jeanette Rule for advertising the event. Thank you to Dennis Van Staalduinen for leading our carol singing en route. Thank you to Olivia and Katie Bolger for preparing and serving hot chocolate. Thank you to Bridgehead for hot chocolate supplies. Many thanks to all the volunteer bakers in our neighbourhood for donations of holiday treats. Thanks to the Champlain Park Community Association for sponsoring the free sleigh ride.

The comment from our Costa Rican guests was: “We have nothing like this in Costa Rica -no community associations!” Merry Christmas everyone and see you at the CPCA Community Winter Carnival on Saturday, January 28,2017.
