Holiday House Decoration Winner

CPCA Holiday Decorating Contest Winner

We are happy to announce that 234 Cowley won the Champlain Park Holiday House Decorating Contest for the second time yet! It was indeed very hard to beat: the front lawn was decorated with snowmen and nutcrackers and strings of colorful lights. Brightly lit wire candy canes hung on the shrub down the driveway, demonstrating the effort put in by the deserving winners on this amazing display. All storeys of the house, along with the garage and the porch, were also festively decorated in the same manner, delighting most passersby.

We thank all those who participated in the contest, both by decorating their house and by voting for their favorite. You truly contributed to sharing the holiday spirit during these unprecedented times.

We would also like to congratulate the deserving winners. They have won a $50 gift certificate good at a Wellington West business of their choice generously donated by the Wellington West BIA.

Thanks again and happy holidays!!

Eirene and Nick

Community Bonfire Wrap-up

We had our third and well attended Community Bonfire this past Saturday. The weather was a nice +4C and sunny – the move to later in February was a good choice.

First, thanks go to community event organizers Jim Cocks and Bill Baggs. They set it up and did most of the work.
