Christmas Lights


The Village is sparkling!  Thanks to Dale and the team of elves who strung, lit and flipped the switch on thousands of lights all over The Village.  Residents noticed we have expanded the lights to include more of Brock and Macdonell streets. 

Stay tuned for the Lumieres coming Wednesday, December 23.  If you are new to The Village – Lumieres are the candles placed along several streets in The Village.  It’s a lovely evening to walk along the streets and share holiday wishes (at a distance) with neighbours.


Looking for more lights? 

Take a drive around NOTL for some spectacular displays!  Here’s a list of some especially decorated homes provided by The Lake Report.

Life in The Village

helping handTwo weeks to Christmas!  We know how December flies by – I hope January and February will as well.   Especially if Niagara moves into further “lock downs”.    

Many of us may have concerns running errands and getting groceries.   But members of The Village have also offered to assist.  You might remember in March the VCA put out a call for volunteers to assist neighbours with errands, pick ups or deliveries.  We are still offering to help. 

If you have a need please let us know and we’ll endeavor to assist.
