It has been an eventful holiday season with events almost every day here on the North Shore. Charity luncheons, gala evenings and lights, lights, lights everywhere you look. Here’s hoping you and your family shared in some of these great times and even though Christmas Day is over, there are still lots of activities and events still going on in our neighbourhoods. Don’t forget to take in some of the fun and carry the good cheer with you into the New Year. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas. Can’t wait to see you all again in 2013!

Running until Jan 5, be sure to take in the gingerbread cookie decorating, glass ornament blowing and dance to the Holiday Band. Oh yeah, did I mention the LIGHTS!
