PHOTOS: Parade of Lights electrifies Stittsville Main

Thousands flocked to Stittsville Main Street on Saturday night for the annual Parade of Lights, presented by the Stittsville Village Association. This year’s parade featured over 60 entries.  The weather was perfect, with snow on the ground but not too cold.

After the parade, Santa stuck around to help with the official tree lighting ceremony at Village Square Park, organized by the Stittsville Lions Club.  The Lions also walked the parade route collecting donations for the Stittsville Food Bank. There was even a marriage proposal by a firefighter during the parade!

PHOTO: With thanks to the bird feeder

Thanks to Janice Blain for sending along this photo. She says:
“Stopped to watch the chickadees and nuthatches today on the Trans Canada Trail west of Westridge. I am sure many people are familiar with these feeders which are constantly filled by a devoted bird lover, who is unknown to me. Would like to take this opportunity to thank them.”

PHOTOS: GRC gym renamed after Erica Wiebe

Erica Wiebe dropped into town Tuesday for the christening of the “Erica Wiebe Gym” in the Goulbourne Recreation Complex.

The renaming was proposed in August by Councillor Shad Qadri after Wiebe took gold in wrestling during the 2016 Rio Olympics. It received unanimous approval from council.

“It’s incredible, it’s so surreal,” said Wiebe. “It just seems like yesterday I was in Rio, on the mats, having the best day of my life and then today to have a gymnasium named after me in my community, it’s an honour.” Continue reading
