New Haburg Board of Trade Christmas Light Fundraising Gala

New Hamburg Christmas Light Fundraising


Dear New Hamburg Residents and Business Owners/Operators On November 7, 1947, the structure that housed the old rink in New Hamburg burned to the ground. The day after the fire, the town council was asked to rebuild the structure. They declined and stated they were saving their ‘nest egg’ for installing the water works. The New Hamburg Board of Trade took it upon themselves to build a new rink and community centre a week after the fire. It took 3-4 years to raise the necessary funds. The project was completed on February 3, 1950. As another Board of Trade initiative, we have launched the Christmas Light Campaign to upgrade our displays along Peel and Huron Streets and install new Christmas displays in the uptown area of Waterloo Street. We are asking the help of businesses and individuals to create a fresh new vibrant look for the 2017 Christmas Season. We have the following ways to support this project: •June 3rd has been selected to get creative in New Hamburg. On this day and prior to it, many businesses will be holding draws/ sales for the project. We ask that you support these businesses. • Purchase single tickets or a table for the June 3rd evening Social Event –
a fundraising dinner (3-course meal) and music with an eight-piece band featuring the music of Frank Sinatra. Tickets are $100 plus hst. This is a great way to treat yourself and friends – plus help our project. Tickets available at Puddicombe House or KLT Wealth Management. •Lastly, we would appreciate any cash donation. All cheques for donations or Social Event payable to New Hamburg Board of Trade. We all want a vibrant retail sector in our community. It is important not only to the retailers but to our service type businesses and manufacturers. It completes the economic circle in our community encouraging new settlement of business and residents alike. Our budget is $30,000 and we already have some donations and independent fundraising events in process. I ask that you make you commitment to the project by May 25th. We do need to order the lights by June 1st in order to have delivery for this Christmas. Please reach out to me directly at or call me at 519-662-4001 Ext 10
