On behalf of Council, CAO Pam Preston, Staff and Fire Chief Guy Oakley, I wish to extend to all our residents a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, healthy and safe New Year. As we prepare to celebrate the holidays with family and friends, let’s take a moment to remember and give thanks to those who serve our country in the armed forces both at home and abroad, our own volunteer Fire Department, members of our RCMP and our Emergency Responders and to wish them and their families a joyous Christmas. During this holiday season let’s not forget our foodbank donations and that extra gift for some less fortunate person. For those who will be travelling near or far to be with family, be safe and please do not drink or text and drive. From our family to yours, Peg and I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.
