'Tis the Season

‘Tis the season! The holiday season holds a different meaning for each and every one of us. For many, it is a time to gather with family and friends to celebrate. For our brokerage it is a time to give back to our wonderful community and show our gratitude in many different ways. Our signature way to say  “Thank You” is to support the tradition of lighting up the Boardwalk. Each year 80,000 individual LED lights are hung in the majestic trees in hopes that it will brighten up the Boardwalk and kick off the holiday season. Each year the lights are a little different, this year there were a total of 15 trees lit from the Leuty Lifeguard Station at the foot of Leuty Avenue to the foot of Fernwood Park Avenue. After 11 years, the crowd has grown from 50 people to light up the Boardwalk, to a crowd of more than 2,000 people attending the kick off this year.

Both the Wright Sisters and Declute tents were pitched on the Boardwalk with complimentary offerings of soup, hot chocolate and Christmas tree ornaments. At the same time, we welcomed donations to support mental health and addiction services at the Michael Garron Hospital Foundation. It is not too late to show your support and make a donation online.

The lights are left up until mid-February in hopes that it will draw people from all over the city to our beautiful waterfront community. This month is also a time to support those people who live in our community and are in need the services of Dixon Hall and the Out Of The Cold program. For almost 15 years we have been preparing and serving meals to those who do not have a place to go to. It seems that each year the crowd grows a little bigger. There are always many familiar faces and always a few new ones. These are some of ways that we connect with our community. The holiday season is a time for us to rejoice and celebrate. Most importantly we celebrate the season with you, our clients, family and friends. We wish you all Peace and Joy over the holidays!
