LightsThe Limoges Citizens’ Committee have plans to brighten the Christmas season in the Village of Limoges. As recorded in their monthly minutes, the community group has proposed a series of 47 Christmas lights on Limoges Road between Calypso and Russland.

The Christmas lights project is still its preliminary planning phase, but the committee is working closely with both The Nation Municipality and Russell Township, the two municipalities that share Limoges Road through the heart of the village. Accordingly, the minutes underline that “agreements with The Nation and Russell have to be finalized before proceeding” and that “a letter will be sent to both municipalities in order to confirm their participation.”

Also to be finalized is the list of 47 posts on which the lights will be installed. The committee has decided, however, that “blue instead of white” lights will be used for the Christmas lights project.

Christmas is a popular time of year in the Village of Limoges. Annual activities include the Christmas Bazaar, the Christmas Food Drive, and the Parade of Lights. Several homes throughout the village are also decorated with Christmas lights.

Village Limoges is a young, endearing community nestled at the doorstep of Canada’s national capital region. Straddling both The Nation Municipality and Russell Township, the village borders the great Larose Forest, one of Ontario’s largest forests. As part of both municipalities, the village sits in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell.

The Limoges Citizens’ Committee promotes and supports the interests of the community, serves as a public conduit to the two municipalities, promotes the research and financing of local projects, and coordinates activities between different groups and associations in the village. From 2002 to 2016, the Limoges Citizens’ Committee distributed more than $120,000 across numerous projects within the community.
