The Holidays are my favorite time of the year. Not sure if it’s all the beautiful decorations, the thousands of twinkling lights, the smell of homemade baking or the holiday music playing everywhere; or just the fact that it was my mother’s favorite time of the year. My fondest holiday memories bring me back to our family farm house. Leading up to the holidays, you could find and enjoy every assortment of holiday candies and nuts, hear classic Christmas music blaring from the kitchen CD player over and over again, and be overwhelmed by the decoration hanging in every single room of the house.  We always had a real tree to decorate and I will always remember hearing my mother’s voice, telling my father to turn the tree one more time to try and hide the huge hole that always seems to find its way back to the center of the tree.

I could go on and on about my own family memories during this time of the year, however I also have wonderful holiday memories with my GBCSC family. Over the past two years, we have opened our doors to the community for our annual HOLIDAY CHEER and when I think back to my first celebration at the Centre, I can still picture our members laughing while singing and acting out the twelve days of Christmas. To me, this is what the holidays are about, coming together, sharing laughs, love and making life long memories. We hope you can join us this year on December 19th from 11AM – 2PM as we create more memories. From the entire Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre Family, we wish each and every member of the GBCSC community, a wonderful Holiday Season; filled with love, laughter and peace. Go make memories!    

Hope Lives Here!
