Christmas a time to reflect where we’ve been and where we’re going

At this time of year, when family and friends come together to celebrate the festive holiday of Christmas, it is a good time

Dear Editor,

At this time of year, when family and friends come together to celebrate the festive holiday of Christmas, it is a good time to reflect on who we really are, where we have been, whom we have helped along the way and where we are headed.

We are often reminded that there are those less fortunate than us who are in need of help, and whose wish is to bring joy to the faces of their loved ones, but circumstances beyond their control keep them from achieving that happiness.

Sylvan Lake continues to prosper because of it most valuable resource: its residents — all of its residents. The Sylvan Lake Chamber is about community support and community spirit and helping those that help us.

There are many residents of Sylvan Lake who spend valuable time volunteering at community events, and who work hard to make our town a memorable place to live Their generous, selfless acts of kindness help their fellow neighbour and we are proud of what our town represents as a community.

The Sylvan Lake Chamber is challenging you to make that extra effort in helping someone who might not have everything they need to make this a joyous and festive year. Let’s come together as a community so that all might witness what a most wonderful time of year it is to celebrate Christmas.

Our year has flown by so quickly and we are always grateful for all we have been blessed with and we would like to send the message that you are not forgotten but remembered for all that you do and have done.

On behalf of the Sylvan Lake Chamber of Commerce, its board of directors and its members, we take great joy in wishing all of Sylvan Lake a very safe and Merry Christmas and the happiest of new years with prosperity for all in 2015.

Dwayne Stoesz,

President, Sylvan Lake Chamber of Commerce
