Christmas carollers in Leaside

Carolling makes a comeback in Leaside

The Northlea United Church has brought back its Christmas caroling event for the second year in a row. Members of the community came out to celebrate the holiday spirit, including local children and their pets. 

The group first met at the church around 6:30 p.m. where music sheets were handed out and band members warmed up before heading out. The route started at Killdeer Cres and ended at Aerodome Cres in the Leaside area.

Leaside Sports Hall of Fame recognizes Leaside Tennis Club founder Matt Sayliss posthumously. Sayliss gathered three of his neighbours, bought a tennis net, some limestone and marked the layout for two tennis courts. That was the seed that grew into what is now the Leaside Tennis Club.
