With a tree lighting ceremony, carol singing and treats, the Oxford Mills Community Association celebrated their last event of 2018 with their usual festive community spirit.
The event was successful with our purpose to bring the community together. Carolling was led by the sisterhood of Guiding units, and Special Guest Barb Tobin was the official Tree Lighting Celebrity. We wanted to thank her for her numerous years of support to our community events.
Santa made an appearance at Maplewood Hall, while everyone warmed up inside with hot chocolate and cookies. We also hosted our Annual Free Pancake Breakfast with Santa at the Oxford Mills United Church.
This event would not be possible without the amazing support and volunteers. We would like to thank, first off, all the OMCA members who have donated supplies, time, and love for our community. We also would like to acknowledge the generosity of Gerry Van Gurp, who has supported the free pancake breakfast. Thanks also to the Seguin family for their donation of pure maple syrup. The perfect pancakes and sausages wouldn’t be possible without the supplies donated from Erik of Dial-a-Chef. Darlene was the amazing Project Manager who made sure no detail was ignored.
The OMCA looks forward to bringing some exciting events to the village. If anyone has any questions, or would like to volunteer, please checkout the Facebook page for the Oxford Mills Community Association (https://www.facebook.com/groups/OxfordMills/).
