Mayor Crombie Marks Christmas 2016


“On behalf of the City of Mississauga and Members of Council, we offer our heartfelt best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season, to all residents.


“During the Christmas season, families throughout Mississauga, and in communities around the world, will gather at church services to proclaim their faith; sing hymns; listen to scripture; reflect on sermons about the Nativity of Jesus; and celebrate the birth of the son of God – a most joyous and sacred time observed by Christians.


“For all Mississaugans, Christmas and the holidays are a time for families, friends, and neighbours to come together, reflect on cherished moments from the months past and make new memories.


“With so much uncertainty around the world, we are all truly blessed to call Mississauga home. This blessing is further realized during the Christmas season, where we wish peace and goodwill to all people and all communities.


“I would like to further recognize the dedicated residents who volunteer their time, talent and treasure toward helping those in need of extra care and support. In particular, I want to thank all local charities, non-profit organizations and faith communities, who are working throughout the Christmas season to help care for those in need of safe shelter, a warm meal and a helping hand.


“As we look toward the promise of 2017, let me once again offer my sincerest best wishes to all citizens for a very happy and Merry Christmas.”
