The Beautiful People
To support little Miss Peyton and her family, hundreds of people in Port Colborne made their way to the Brebeuf Hall this past Saturday night. The event was a huge success… By 8:30 the hall was at capacity but people waited patiently in line in the cold to get let in and help to support the cause.
For those of you who don’t know, sweet little Peyton was diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer on January 28th, 2013 and this event was the creation of friends and family members close to Peyton and all the beautiful people from one small town coming together to help out a family in need.

What a good turn out for the “Prayers for Jason” fundraiser on Saturday… It was so great to see all the garage sale and bake sale items that were donated and the results of what a small group of people can do when they come together. Over $5000 raised for the little guy on Saturday. There will be another event held in February so if anyone is interested in helping out please visit the following website :
Here’s a post in which you’ll enjoy seeing sweet little children anticipating the uniquely Port Colborne-Welland Canal arrival of Santa on the deck of the JW Cooper tugboat. The event has been a pre-Christmas tradition for more than 20 years on West Street, always on the first Saturday of December. A choir of talented students from the local Music Depot music school entertained families while they waited and watched for the tugboat to come into view from the Lake Erie entrance of the Welland Canal. Cheers and applause ring out as Santa waves from the bow, and the tug pulls into dock along the wall. Santa climbs the ladder to the street, and children surround him with greetings and hugs. The big bearded man in the red suit ho ho ho’s and speaks with the children about his arrival, and once he makes his way through the crowd, the choir leads him and the entire gathering in a parade down Charlotte Street to the Guild Hall. Inside the hall, children await their turn to tell Santa their wishes by participating in crafts and singalongs. They climb on Santa’s knee, have their picture taken to save the precious memory, and everyone receives a bag of treats, donated by West Street merchants.
It’s the only place Santa arrives by tugboat, and it’s a wonderful afternoon event, not to be missed, by children of all ages. Later the same day, just after dark, in his signature sleigh pulled by eight tiny reindeer, Santa is the special guest in the Port Colborne parade of lights. (57 floats in 2012! wow!) What special Port Colborne day. Enjoy the photos!
