Puslinch parade

Dear Editor:

The Optimist Club of Puslinch would like to thank all of the sponsors, volunteers and community members who came together to make this year’s Puslinch Santa Clause Parade a huge success!

The weather on Nov. 26 held off just long enough for the parade, including the marching bands, horses, cute little elves, friendly clowns, a grumpy Grinch and a very jolly Santa to make it down to the shelter of the ORC!

Inside, excited children shared their Christmas wishes with Santa while the community warmed up with hot chocolate and hotdogs.  Neighbours mingled while the band played festive carols.

It was a joyous atmosphere and a wonderful way to “Unwrap the Magic of Christmas.”

As a result of the parade, a donation of 653 pounds of food was delivered to the foodbank and $1,000 in gift cards were donated to the Adopt-a-Family program.

This wonderful event is made possible through the generous support of our local businesses, organizations, and community members.  Please thank them and support them when you can (listed below).
