Kindness after Christmas

December 31, 2013   ·   0 Comments

Shelburne Town Pharmacy has become an integral part of the community since opening for business earlier this year. After hosting many customer and community appreciation teas and dinners, Shelburne Town Pharmacy’s owner, Sanjay Lekhi and his wife Shalini hosted an outdoor treat for the community of Shelburne on December 27th from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

“I just wanted to extend that holiday spirit after Christmas. We thought we would show the community we appreciate them and offer snacks to everyone especially following Christmas,” commented Lekhi.

Concerned about the community and what happens when supplies run out, it was the Lekhi’s idea to offer sustenance to everyone.

“Christmas really brings everyone together, and this is a great way to have people meet each other , share refreshments and get to know your neighbours,” added Lekhi.

Going one step further, the event offered a draw to win prizes and other businesses were eager to contribute to their community as well by donating prizes to be won.

Foodland, Debra Jones Natural Healing, Hands On Catering & Specialties, Giant Tiger, Mac’s Convenience Store, Zumba with Rena and Your Inner Wisdom Services contributed donated prizes making this a community event ‘for the community from the community’ proving great things can happen when people work together.

Shelburne’s Christmas programs were greatly appreciated and an important note to think about is the upcoming year ahead. With kindness, thoughtfulness and an effort the likes of this event at Shelburne Town Pharmacy, Shelburne once again proves community spirit is alive and well. To quote Dorothy from TheWizard of Oz, “There is no place like home”.

Shelburne Town Pharmacy and all the businesses who contributed to this community gathering wish to extend wishes of good tidings for the upcoming year.
