Christmas Sleigh Ride – Thanks

Many Thanks to Volunteer Neighbours for Community Sleigh Ride 2018!

What a wonderful way to start the Holidays with Carol Singing and Jingling of Bells through Champlain Park!

A special thank you to Jim Cocks who was the energetic organizer of the event. Dennis Van Staalduinen, West Wellington Business Improvement Association, led the singing of Christmas Carols with enthusiasm! The Sauve family, with Tom Sauve playing a lead role, once again prepared the special visit to Santa and distribution of candy canes to children by Santa’s helpers. The Champlain Park Community Association funded the event. Thank you to volunteers who made hot chocolate and donated baked goods that were enjoyed by everyone at the field house. Families came out of hibernation to an evening with mild weather and a great opportunity to connect with neighbours! See the attached photos contributed by John Arnason.
