Holiday Greetings

Christmas Card smallerFor many people in our community, the holidays are a time when they are especially motivated by a desire to make their community a better place to live and to make a difference to the lives of others.

I have always been aware of the wonderful community spirit here in the City of Burlington.

In what has been a very challenging year for our community, I have to acknowledge the incredible kindness and support that our residents have shown one another.

I have truly witnessed the incredible heart and soul of our community this year and am very grateful to call Burlington home.

Every single Burlington resident plays a role in making our City even more special.

Over the holiday season, I hope you have the opportunity to gather with your family and friends and enjoy a little of what Burlington has to offer.

Enjoy a stroll downtown to take in the Lakeside Festival of Lights and to see the retailers dressed for the holidays, skate on any of our indoor or outdoor rinks, enjoy the seasonally-inspired events at the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, or gather to watch thousands of ‘Santas’ running through our streets .

On behalf of my family, Council and staff, I wish you and your family the best for a happy, healthy holiday season and a very merry Christmas.
