Community spirit shines in Christmas decorations


With the weather outside being so unseasonably warm it seems hard to believe it’s less than a month until Christmas. It is awesome that the Burns Lake business community is help making the season Merry and Bright with the beautiful display of Christmas cheer in the windows of their local business.

Although the snow is lacking there is a feeling in the air that reminds me of why we live in a small town, no matter what the day brings we still celebrate together as a family – not just a town. The displays are equally as beautiful as any I saw in the windows of businesses in Ottawa when I was living there.

All are worthy but Aksenz shines brightest with one of the best window displays I’ve seen in years.

Way to go Burns Lake, makes me proud to be a part of this family!
