Thank You to Community Volunteers for the Champlain Park Sleigh Ride 2019!
What a wonderful way to warm our hearts on a cold evening with carol singing, jingling of bells, and a visit with Santa!
A special thank you to Jim Cocks, the enthusiastic organizer of the event. The King family, with Cowley Avenue resident Bill Baggs playing a lead role, prepared the special stop to visit Santa and distribution of candy canes to children by Santa’s helpers.
The Champlain Park Community Association funded the event. Thanks to volunteers who made hot chocolate and donated baked goods that were enjoyed by everyone at the field house. Thanks to Bridgehead for the beverage supplies.
Families who came out of hibernation to participate were happy to start the holiday season connecting with neighbours and sharing Christmas cheer!
