Ben Cottrill has been a long time loyal volunteer at Community Living Kirkland Lake, always willing to go the extra mile and help out whenever needed.  In particular, Ben always plays a huge roll in the creation of the annual float for the Christmas Parade.  He easily puts in over 100 hours of his time each year, planning, cutting and painting to make incredible props.  He is the backbone to the Annual Parade and we really couldn’t do it without him.

Another Amazing Christmas Parade in Kirkland Lake!


20151127_182621The creativity was on full display by all the
floats, with lights, decorations, costumes, music, dancing and as always a visit from Jolly old Saint Nicholas. At Community Living Kirkland Lake we are fortunate to have a passionate and creative group of volunteers that put countless hours into designing and decorating the float.  With Elvis, Rocking Ronny, Santa and his crew of Elves in the building, CLKL rocked out to festive tunes and finished in third place.  CLKL donated their winnings to the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program.   For more pictures, please check us out on Facebook.
