Many to thank for lighting up Stittsville Village Square Park

Over 20 volunteers came out to help install the lights at Village Square Park on Saturday, November 16th. The Stittsville Business Association organized the volunteers in collaboration with the Stittsville Lions Club. The two groups have been responsible for lighting up Village Square during the Christmas season for several years.

Darryl Metzger, local business owner, repeated his recruitment of volunteers again this year to take on the lights installation. This year, the group was fortunate and pleased to receive the donated use of a genie lift to deal with the loftiness of the trees. Using ladders to reach the treetops made the light installation challenging in previous years.

Darryl wants to thank everyone who contributed their help this past Saturday and compiled his list of thank yous so he could share them with each contributor and Stittsville residents.
