Christie/Cummings is pleased to sponsor of A Collingwood Christmas Carol, a dramatic reading of Charles Dickens’ holiday classic to raise funds for My Friend’s House, Collingwood’s shelter for victims of domestic violence. Special guest performers from across the region will gather at Trinity United Church on December 14, 2013 to perform the reading, which will also mark the 160th anniversary of Dickens’ first public reading of the Carol. http://www.christiecummings.com/blog/2013/11/19/christie-cummings-sponsors-a-christmas-carol-to-support-my-friend%27s-house
Whether we can collect more or less doesn’t matter. What is important is for the neighbors to work together towards a common goal. This is the true Christmas spirit – to be united and help each other not just in times of need but also when planning for future developments to make our community a better place to be. Just in case you receive a Caroling letter, give a piece of your heart and many blessings will come to you!
