Come celebrate winter and the holiday season!


This year we are having a combined event, partly located at our community hall like in past years, and partly at the nearby Holland Plaza.


At our hall we will have chili, hot drinks, music, a craft for kids and a festive atmosphere. We will have a horse drawn wagon ride riding back and forth between our hall and Holland Plaza. There, several of the local businesses will have free activities:

  • Music and food at The Local Omnivore
  • A kids craft at Wabi Sabi
  • Santa Claus at Lifestyle Meditations
  • Hot chocolate at Cafe Linnea
  • Doughnuts from Doughnut Party
  • And several more!

As well, we will have a cleared and brightly lit path to walk the short distance between our hall and Holland Plaza.


This event is free and we will also have some winter themed draw prizes. We're looking forward to seeing you there - and hope that you can help volunteer for this event!
