SHOP LOCALLY for a vibrant community!


by Jeff Goodman, Sustainable North Grenville

Please join us for some seasonal cheer at our annual get-together and Give North Grenville silent auction. The event takes place on Thursday, December 6, from 6.30-8:30 pm, at the Maplewood Hall, 92 Maplewood Ave, Oxford Mills. It features specialty items gathered from local merchants and artisans.

To be a sustainable community, it is important to support your local economy by buying from local businesses and artisans. Why not commit to buying at least some of your gifts this year in the Kemptville and Merrickville area? Shopping locally supports your family and friends who rely on the jobs that local businesses provide, as well as the choice and ready availability of many amenities and services which keep our community vibrant. Use it or lose it!

Find out more by following Sustainable North Grenville on Facebook, and see photos of some of the items to be auctioned:

This festive, lamp-lit evening will also feature some uplifting tunes from Bruce Enloe, as well as some light refreshments, all in the beautiful heritage Maplewood Hall in the charming hamlet of Oxford Mills. Take a little time between bidding to go for a stroll around the village and take in the Christmas lights and decorations, but don’t take too long, as bidding will wrap up around 8-8.30!

Get some great ideas for spending your gift-giving dollars locally, enjoy some seasonal food and entertainment, and support North Grenville’s entrepreneurs at the same time. The event is free and everyone is welcome.

Monies raised will support the 2019 North Grenville Sustainability Fair in April, and our monthly events that include movies and guest speakers. With your help at this event, we can continue offering the Fair and monthly events with free admission to everyone in our community.
