On Saturday June 17th, despite the non perfect weather, neighbours gathered together in Parc la Croisée to express their community spirit at this year's annual Neighbours Day event.
Young and old alike, gathered in the park to fraternize with old friends, make new ones, enjoy music, games, a good BBQ and more!
It was an afternoon of fun, laughter, and comradeship.
A very special thanks goes to Joseph Mouaikel, a La Croisée community resident, and Moe Atallah who offered and prepared the wonderful food at our event.
Also, a big thank you to all the volunteers who made this event possible: Annic McGuire, Louis Martinet, Charles Martinet, Angela and Warren Hager, Halina, Jamie and Jack Hagar, Josée Sisson, Lisa Sattler, Allana Hayes, Sean Stevenson, Lyne Forget-Lanthier, Sylvie Lefebvre, Mike Girouard and Ronan Bosch.
On Sunday morning, December 4th, Santa completed test flights and landings at the Gatineau Golf Course. During a one hour break, and in the spirit of the season, Santa also sat with many families for their family Christmas photo.
Everyone shared the spirit of the season that was welcoming and enjoyable for all in the Clubhouse Bistro.
This was our 5th annual community Christmas event where beautiful Fraser Fir Christmas trees were sold and, more importantly for everyone, at least 600 lbs of non-perishable food and other items were collected for the Aylmer Food Centre.
Our community offers thanks to Santa, our generous tree supplier, the Gatineau Golf Course, our volunteers and every one from across the region for their effort, generosity in time and donation to the Aylmer Food Centre at this time of year.
Families will receive their photos over the coming days. (A special thanks to our talented resident photographer, Patrick Bilodeau).
Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!
