Friends, family, neighbours and a community have all come together to bring Christmas to St. George a couple months early this year.
It’s a favourite holiday for the young Evan Leversage, 7, a St. George German Public School student who’s fighting cancer. Friends and family wanted to bring the joys of the holiday season to Evan to fill his bucket list while he is still well.
Community members have adorned their homes with Christmas lights and other decorations, businesses downtown have signs wishing Christmas greetings to Evan and a small parade will pass by Evan’s home on the evening of Saturday, October 24, 2015. Local Brant OPP will drive Evan throughout the village to see the Christmas lights in a police cruiser as well.
“Evan has touched everyone through his smile, laughter, and sense of humour,” said Sandra Beedham, Learning Resource Teacher at St. George German Public School.
Evan is a Grade 2 student at St. George German and has two brothers – Tyson in Kindergarten and Logan in Grade 4. While he’s been off since the beginning of October, his peers are eager to help him celebrate Christmas. The Giving Back Committee will dress as elves and hand out candy canes during the parade on Saturday. A fabric banner will also be created by the students for everyone to sign.
