Ahneen! Well, it is hard to believe that it is already time to say Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
As we celebrate this holiday season, we want to extend our best wishes to everyone for a safe, happy and healthy Christmas with family and friends. As we reflect back on the year, and the many challenges we have faced in years gone by as a community, we have remained strong and determined. This can be a difficult time for those who are missing loved ones, and so we take the time to give thanks and special acknowledgements to those who have passed on. Let us use this time to reflect and count our blessings. We give thanks to our youth, our veterans, elders, and women and men who have contributed so much over time.
The greatest gift we could exchange this season is to serve one another.
May we ask you all to remember your neighbours at this time of year, especially the elderly and those who live alone.
We would also like to extend a special welcome to those who have come home to Georgina Island for the holidays to be with family and hope that you have a wonderful time.
Our very best wishes go to those who are sick at home or in hospital this Christmas and we wish you a speedy recovery.
To all who are spending Christmas away from the island, we would like to extend Christmas greetings from Georgina Island.
From your Council and your dedicated Band staff, we wish you and your family all the love and blessings of the season.
