Concert For Hope

On behalf of Georgina Mitropoulos

Hello everyone,

It is my pleasure to share with you some photos of the events that occurred on Locke Street to kick off the holiday season. The children and families had a great time despite the brisk weather!

On behalf of the BIA, I would like to thank Donut Monster for sharing lovely hot drinks and donut holes with the community. Thank you to Mr. Tony Greco for lighting our tree and a very special thank you to the children and teachers at St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School for leading us all in Christmas Carols. Once again, they stole the show!

Thanks to Jenn from Quills for adding to the festivities with letters to Santa and to Kyle Forth from Brux House for rebuilding the Christmas mailbox for a second year in a row. Thank you to the KNA for working with us by planning a crafting party for the children. I must also extend a very special thank you to Brandon Stanicak from the West Town for helping in a million different ways! I am grateful to all of the volunteers. Thanks again Margo for your help along the way.

I wish you all a happy holiday season and a wonderful new year!

Yours truly,

Georgina Mitropoulos
