For the past six years, we have had the pleasure of putting on a haunted house at our 20th Street home.
As a family, Halloween has brought us many great memories and a lot of good times.
As you could imagine, it takes a group effort, but it is well worth it after seeing the smiles from both children and adults.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our family, friends, co-workers, neighbours and the Harwood community for showing your support.
Thank you to the wonderful woman who donated candy every year, and thank you to the person who dropped off a thoughtful Halloween card with a $25 Tim Hortons gift card in it.
Thanks to all of the people who put money in the donation jar, raising $100 for charity this year.
The people who supported us played an important role in us continuing this effort over the years.
We feel so fortunate to live in a place where there are so many great community events happening all around town and all year round.
We have learned that participating in, and supporting, community events and functions such as silent auctions, food bank drives, volunteering and donating is what makes them so successful.
Vernon is a beautiful place to live but it’s the people who make it a vibrant, family-oriented community and an awesome place.
Thanks for making our last year great.
We are excited for Halloween next year, to experience community events with our two girls.
