The holidays are the time that often encourage us to reflect on the past year and look forward to the coming year. As I look back on 2016, I am inspired by the great things happening in our municipality. From new businesses, volunteers continually stepping up and doing great work in our community and beyond, continued growth and Council initiatives that will pave the way for continued investment in Lucan Biddulph…2016 has been a good one for us. 2017 promises more of the same. I know I speak for the rest of Council when I say we are looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that we see in 2017. I encourage, no, think of it as more of a challenge, for you to keep as much of your holiday shopping dollars in Lucan Biddulph as you can. Our retailers offer many, many unique items and I know you will be able to check off many of those on your to-buy-for list! Check our stores out, many are offering special shopping hours and open houses to accommodate the demands of the season. It benefits all of us when we #keepitlocal.
On behalf of Council and our Township Staff, I would like to extend heartfelt greetings for a happy, healthy and safe holiday season. Take the time to count your blessings and reflect on how fortunate we are to live where we do. The holidays remind us of what is really important in life, the key is to remember that all year long. May you and your family experience a wonderful holiday. All the best for a Happy 2017.
