Thanks to Santa and his helpers at the Parade

Ashcroft Mayor thanks Santa and his helpers for bringing Christmas to town.

Dear Editor

The Santa Claus parade that took place on Dec. 7 was a wonderful display of community pride and cooperation. The colourful floats shone brightly in the winter night and this event gave everyone a reason to stay downtown later than usual and an opportunity to mingle and visit with friends and neighbours.

Council and I would like to thank everyone who took the time out of their schedules to build a float for the parade and to the public for coming down and supporting them. These events do not happen without a lot of work and a big thank you goes out to the Chamber for organizing it once again. However, special thanks must be given to Keith, Jeff, Wayne, Bert and their group of helpers who made sure that Santa`s float was ready on time. What would a Santa Parade be if the jolly old elf wasn’t there? Santa stayed downtown after the parade so that the children were able to pay him a visit and deliver their wishes and hopes directly to him. These are the things that childhood memories are made of.

Again, thank you to everyone for making Ashcroft home and we all wish you a safe and happy holiday season.

Andy Anderson,

Mayor
