OTTAWA – Today in the House of Commons NDP MP Claude Gravelle (Nickel Belt) delivered the following statement celebrating the Parade of Lights in Sturgeon Falls.
Last Friday I participated in my 7th Parade of Lights in Sturgeon Falls in the Municipality of West Nipissing - what fun. Thanks to Santa’s community elves, hundreds of children enjoyed the candies, the juice and the magic of Christmas.
This community of 13,000 has a parade with 100 floats, longer than much bigger cities!
Sturgeon Falls is one of, if not THE, most bilingual communities in Canada – two cultures, two languages in harmony, working, living and playing side by side.
The Parade of Lights shines a light on West Nipissing.
So much excellent community spirit.
The West Nipissing firefighters Santa telethon recently raised 32,600.00$ to help families.
Some 500 seniors will attend the annual Christmas Supper tomorrow.
The Kids Safe Hallowe-en, the Farm to Fork dinner celebrating our local farmers, and so much more.
West Nipissing - Joie de Vivre.
You make us proud!
