The Lighting of the parks is a true community project. Volunteers worked many hours to set up over 16,000 lights. Contributors to Aylmer’s downtown Christmas decorations this year were: MainStreet Aylmer -Downtown Merchants, Aylmer Area Community Foundation, Showcase East Elgin Realty Inc. Brokerage, ERTH Corporation, EESS Leadership Class, Joel and Betty Falkenham and the Town of Aylmer. The Community Decoration Committee: Diane Mott, Linda Black, Cindy Difaszio, Kim Enns, Wanda Kapogines, Jeneen Toth, Michelle Toth, Jeff and Nicole Wiebenga and Judi Wright. The lights are in Palmer Park, Balmoral Park and the Old Town Hall Parkette. Thank you to the Aylmer Area Community Band, Miller’s Valu mart and Aylmer Royal Bank for their support at the lighting.
This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Aylmer Area Community Foundation, the Government of Canada, and individual Canadians.
