Purple Grove news

Congratulations to the Kincardine and District Chamber of Commerce and all who participated, for another great Santa Claus parade in Kincardine. The lights make a parade so special.
By the way, doesn’t Ripley look great with all the decorations, the decorated storefronts and homes? We are so thankful to live in such a caring community.
'Tis the season for Christmas gatherings. Joyce and John Farrell hosted the Elliott family Christmas, Sunday, at their home. They were all pleased to have family travel from a distance -  Janice and Stephen Elliott of Blind River; their daughter, Lynn Elliott of Ottawa; Shari, Ian, William and Richard Elliott of Barrie; Ruth and Joel Greenwood and girls of Mississauga; and Joy and Liam Kubassek of Stratford.
Heather and Sam Finnie have a lovely collection of Nativity Scenes displayed at their office. They would be pleased to have you drop by to see and enjoy them. Sam and Brandon Finnie are enjoying a few days on a road tour of various sights in Nevada.
We were sorry to hear of the passing of Betty Ackert of Kelowna, formerly of Holyrood and Kincardine. Our sympathy to all her family. 

Sympathy, also, to the families of Etta Dickieson and Paul McDonald.
It was such an honour to attend the Remarkable Assembly of Bruce County Women, Thursday evening, in Underwood. Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson and Kincardine mayor Ann Eadie hosted the event. We were so encouraged to hear from the women being honoured for their roles professionally and as volunteers in the lower Bruce County area. Special speaker Laryssa Biesenthal of Walkerton motivated us to even bigger and better roles in our communities. Among those honoured from our area, were Fran Farrell, Colleen Maguire and Tanya Leppington.
It is going to be a busy week in Purple Grove – the Women’s Institute meets at Janet Rhody’s home Wednesday afternoon and the annual Christmas Concert  at the community centre is Friday evening.
