Joy & Lights Tree Lighting Ceremony a Success!

What a truly incredible night we had for the Tree Lighting Ceremony & Starlight Shopping!    We had a really great turn out and it was wonderful to see so many families enjoying the performances, singing along, enjoying a hot chocolate or apple cider from our local businesses, and having a happy time!    THIS is what it’s all about!    Thanks to each and every one of our businesses for staying open late, offering a little something special that night, coming out to watch, and sharing our posts on social media!   Every little thing adds up to a magical night for our community!

Many Joy Books were stamped that night, and we look forward to continuing the promotion until December 31st!   5000 Joy Books have already been distributed to our participating businesses.  If you need more Joy Books or would like to sign up, simply email ambasador@downtownorangeville.ca .

Rest assured, you can still stamp or initial your customers Joy Books even if you are waiting to receive more.  Also encourage them to check with another participating business if they have not yet picked up a book.   Full list of participating businesses can be found here: https://downtownorangeville.ca/joybook/

If you have any questions about the Joy Book promotion, please get in touch!
