(WINDSOR, ON) – Congratulations to the Bloomfield House which hosted What Christmas Means to Me at Sandwich Teen Action Group, on December 12. For the holiday shin-dig the room was filled with tables full of holiday design and a room where Santa’s elves were busy serving baked goodies and hot chocolate.
The Bloomfield House choir and drummers filled the hearts of all with holiday cheer from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm, and the crowd was singing and dancing along with glee. People of all ages were enjoying the festivities and the spirits of tiding, comfort, and joy were certainly in the air
Christmas at the Bloomfield House includes the entire month of December full of seasonal festivities including Friday night holiday movies, arts, and crafts. Also, carolling throughout the community.
Yes, you read that correctly. The Bloomfield House is bringing back old school, door-to-door holiday cheer with singing; something from which the 21st century has strayed. The response from the community has been very enthusiastic, as many are eager to either join in or await the Bloomfield House choir to arrive at their front porch.
The next round of carolling will take place this coming Friday, December 18.
Last week, there was a community tree lighting held at Bloomfield House, which was the kick off for the Giving Tree Project. The effort focuses on both children and stray cats.
“Participants are collecting food and treats for the cats as well as new and gently used or handmade gifts for the children”, said founder Teajai Travis.
If you wish to participate in the Giving Tree Project, donations may be dropped off at Bloomfield House, at 3578 Bloomfield Road in Olde Sandwich Town.
