Grand Xmas 2017 winners

Grand Christmas 2017

The Ladysmith Downtown Business Association picked the winners of several gift certificates to be spent locally.

Shaun Kuyten was the winner of $500 and Bernadette Taylor won the $300 prize. Arlene Hobson and Patti Hieb each won $100 in gift certificates as well.

Several other prizes of $25 were also awarded.

Old Time Christmas takes place every December and features horse and carriage rides, late night shopping, candle making, and s’mores.

“It is a team effort that is targeted to helping our local retailers have a successful retail season. It is simple, fun and this year we had more entries than we have ever had,” said LDBA president Andrea Rosato-Taylor. “We love the fact that we have a diverse retail base that lets our community shop locally.”

The Ladysmith & District Credit Union and the Town of Ladysmith were presenting sponsors and the Ladysmith Chronicle also donated space for advertising.
