Winter Carnival Thank You
Thanks go out to all the sponsors, volunteers and attendees of this year’s winter Carnival! Held on January 20th, the winter
weather came out in full force, but that could not stop our hearty community members from coming out and enjoying all the
outdoor activities. Families took part in sleigh rides, snowshoeing, skating, tug-of-war, chilli, hot dogs and a campfire with
marshmallows. Indoors, Dr Kaboom delighted the kids with magic tricks and lots of fun.
Thank you to all the fall craft sale artists, crafters and vendors who donated crafts and items towards our silent auctions for the
winter carnval. Our selection was great this year and the funds raised go towards this newsletter and running other community
events. Our community businesses are so supportive and we appreciate your support and certainly we, as community
members, will continue to support your businesses as well.
Our long term coordinator of this event, Marianne Cox, is leaving us this year. Thanks for all your dedication and hard work
pulling off this Trend Arlington main event. You will be missed! If anyone wishes to take on this event, please contact
