Donations were also made by Hardy's Independent Grocers, Fortis, Haduc Lumber, Carman Goldsmith, Mames R McDonald, Grounded, MacMillar Motos, Devon Chrysler, Reschke Fitz LLP, Bray Agencies and Wilf Bittner. Also the Devon Bottle Depot, Mr. Printer, Aldritt Space for office, COP, Lionettes and the town Bus and a great deal on Busing! The one Radio were very helpful and effective with promotion. Like few other very successful functions across this province, Christmas in the Park in Devon was a community effort like no other. A rare experience in the goodness of people.
The three Gentlemen above carry most the weight of the origination like buses, food and serving people. All are senior Lions and gave a tremendous amount of their personal time to the event. We thank you.
There is Santa and his wife for the kids, Cameras flash and the excitement is very high. More pictures will be added over the week as they come in. This is a sampling: I have missed much like the IGA booth for maple syrup snow, And, the fire dancers who were mesmerizing. Hope some of my friends or people who attended have pictures will take the time to email them to me.
The first event the Lion's expected 500 people and received over 1000! Last year the event was cancelled due to -30 degree temperatures. The year before last 5000 attended from around the country.
I'm waiting for others photos to arrive. The event is huge and covers a very large area and the crowds were heavy again; wonderful.
It costs 5.00 for a family of 4 to catch the bus at the downtown lot. Can't miss it. Or, 2.00 per person.
No vehicles other than the Buses are allowed in or around the park. Lots of buses to get back to you vehicle when ever you want.
No charge for the hot dogs, hot chocolate or chili. Just enjoy and smile with every one else.
