Thank you for making first Old Tyme Christmas a success

Lesley Parent of the Ladysmith Downtown Business Association thanks the community.

Editor:

I would like to thank the community of Ladysmith for taking part in our first Old Tyme Christmas event Dec. 7.

It was a pleasure to be involved in, and to witness, the camaraderie of all who attended.

The town was full of goodwill and cheer, families and friends chatting around the open fire and catching up with one another over a cup of hot chocolate and many trying roasted chestnuts for the first time.

The stores were busy with shoppers, and all around, the sound of carollers and laughter was in the air.

A special thank you to Cathleen McMahon for putting this wonderful event together and to all the volunteers and organizations that gave their time to make this event so wonderful — without it, this event would not have been possible.

Once again, Ladysmith has shown our famous community spirit.

Lesley Parent

President, Ladysmith Downtown Business Association
