LHHA Prepares for Holiday Season

Submitted by Nancy Strang 

The Lion’s Head Hospital Auxiliary elves are once again getting ready for the holiday season. This time of year we begin to think about how we are going to get everything accomplished that we feel we need to so… let us help you.

Cookie Walk December 3rd

Food and baking, especially those rich and sugary treats, seem to be front and centre in our thoughts and we look for new and even sweeter treats. We are preparing to bake dozens of cookies, squares, make candy, decorate one of a kind gingerbread cookies and more, all to give you time to do the other things you need to do at this time of year. If anyone out there would like to help us bake please call Nancy Strang at 519-793-4576 or send her an email at We welcome all bakers. 

When the baking is done the elves will be ready to greet you at the Lion’s Head Anglican Church at 55 Main St. Lion’s Head on Saturday, December 3rd from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Come in and shop to your heart’s content while enjoying some Christmas music from Brian Taylor and friends.

After a huge success last year, the Lion’s Head Hospital Auxiliary fundraiser, “DECK YOUR HALLS”, will again be held on December 3 located at Lion’s Head United Church. The sale will run from 9 am to 3 pm. We will have tabletop greenery arrangements to brighten your indoor Christmas decor. You can chose from small size displays suitable for a hostess gift or side table decoration up to larger arrangements for coffee or dining room table. Each display will have fresh evergreen sprays, decorated with pine cones and ornaments, with a coordinating bow. 

As well, our outdoor Gnomes will be making an appearance again this year. Approximately 2 feet tall, with a red hat and mitts and a potato for his nose. This cute fellow will add some cheer to your porch or doorway long after the Christmas season.

Come before or after your visit to the cookie walk or make your way over after the parade.
