“Give North Grenville” 2016

Shop locally for a vibrant community! 

Sustainable North Grenville invites you to join us for some seasonal cheer at our annual get-together and Give North Grenville silent auction.

The event takes place on Tuesday, 6th December from 6.30-9pm at the Maplewood Hall in Oxford Mills and features specialty items gathered from local merchants and artisans.

To be a sustainable community it is important to support your local economy by buying from local businesses and artisans. Why not commit to buying at least some of your gifts this year in the Kemptville and Merrickville area? Shopping locally supports your family and friends who rely on the jobs that local businesses provide as well as the choice and ready availability of many amenities and services which keep  our community vibrant. Use it or lose it!

Among our many offerings this year  is a beautiful Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel. Thank you to Arn and Jan Snyder of Forest Row Farm for this amazing contribution.

Thank you also to our other generous supporters so far: Love My Buns, Ahimsa Yoga, Graeme’s Bakery, Vincent Spa Garage, Business Strategies, Aubin Farm, Geronimos, Body and Sole, Downtowne Ice Cream Shoppe,  as well as hand-made items from crafty individuals. Thank you in advance to our additional contributors. Find out more by following Sustainable North Grenville on Facebook and see photos of some of the items to be auctioned. Please contact Clare Weissflog if you would like to make a donation.

This festive, lamp lit evening will also feature some uplifting tunes from Bella Borealis as well as some light refreshments, all in the beautiful heritage Maplewood Hall in the charming hamlet of Oxford Mills. Take a little time between bidding to go for a stroll around the village and take in the Christmas lights and decorations, but don’t take too long as bidding will wrap up around 8-8.30!

Get some great ideas for spending your gift-giving dollars locally, enjoy some seasonal food and entertainment and support North Grenville’s entrepreneurs at the same time. The event is free and everyone is welcome.

Come out and join us at 6.30 on Tuesday, December 6th at Maplewood Hall, Maplewood Ave., County Rd 18, Oxford Mills!

Monies raised will support the 2017 North Grenville Sustainability Fair on April 23rd.
