Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Thursday, December 23, 2021
Christmas means different things for each of us. In a year when ‘normal’ and ‘routine’ have been anything but, the approaching holiday season may feel like a very welcome traditional time charged with a renewed sense of meaning.
Many of us have found the changes and restrictions this year have brought a new recognition of the importance of family, friends, neighbours, and community. I hope that each of us will be able to enjoy these blessings in ways big and small over the holidays.
There are so many people in our communities who are deserving of our deep and ongoing gratitude for all the work they have done to protect and support us this year. For these people especially, may you find time to relax and be replenished.
As a newly elected Council, we share a commitment to serving our communities, meeting challenges head on, providing meaningful communication to our residents, and making informed decisions.& We thank you for your trust and support as we enter 2022.
Let’s continue to look out for each other and shop locally, utilising our many incredible and hardworking independent businesses.
In the spirit of Christmas, or however you choose to celebrate the season, I hope you will have an occasion to rest, to reflect, pay attention to what is most important in life, and feel gratitude for the smallest of blessings.
On behalf of Council, have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
– Mayor Don Kochan
