Brownsburg-Chatham will host its Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 9. The parade will take place in the centre of Brownsburg, at the intersection of St-Patrick and rue des Érables at Veterans Park, where the festivities will continue until 3 p.m. Residents are invited to decorate a float with the theme of their choice. There will be a $250 prize for the first-place entry, $100 for the second-place entry and $50 for the third-place winner.
There will be pony rides, inflatable structures, elves on site and the chance to warm up beside the fire.
This is also an opportunity to contribute non-perishable food items as part of the food collection, or “guignolée”, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in different locations in town, including at the main intersection, in the church basement at Église Saint-Louis-de-France and in the parking lot at the Église Saint-Philippe Church.
The municipality of Brownsburg-Chatham extends thanks to Orica Canada and to the Saint-Trinité parish for their support for these events.
The guignolée in Brownsburg-Chatham is organized by the Saint-Trinité parish for the residents of Brownsburg-Chatham, serving residents in the Saint-Philippe, Pine Hill and Brownsburg communities.
If you are in need of a Christmas Basket, you can register for one on November 20, 24, 27 and 29 and December 1 at Église Saint-Louis-de-France from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Those registering are asked to bring information which will qualify them for a Christmas Basket (revenues and expenses). Registrants will be asked to complete an eligibility form.
The Christmas Baskets will be distributed on December 16 between 9 a.m. and 12 noon.
For information, call 1-450-533-6314.
