Optimist Park was the place to be on Friday November 27th. Girl Guides hosted a craft tent making bird treats to hang on the treesand selling their famous cookies for $5.
LAFA children were on stage carolling as a group as well as solo's by some talented Lakeshore residents!
The Optimist Club helped man a refreshment tent with hot chocolate, coffee, and apple cider to keep everyone warm! Volunteers also served cookies, tim bits, popcorn and hot dogs...ALL DONATED by the Belle River - On the Lake BIA Businesses! Lakeshore Firefighters and OPP brought SANTA to the park for 6pm! Just before he arrived the Mayor and councillors helped with a countdown to turn on all the lights in park to kick off the holiday season!
Firefighters and Belle River High School students supervised a marshmellow roast and s'more making in the new pagoda donated by the Belle River Horticultural Society.
We collected more than $200 in cash donations for the Lakeshore Foodbank and two pick ups trucks filled with canned goods for the local Goodfellow holiday baskets!
