Quote

“No matter what your faith or traditions, this holiday Season will be very different than years past. I know we all want to celebrate with family and friends, but please consider that many cases are coming from private functions and gatherings. That’s why TOA is proud to present the Merry & Bright: Home for the Holidays program, which offers opportunities to celebrate safely. No matter what your plans, please remember to practice the 3 W’s – watch your distance, wear a mask and wash your hands. On behalf of Ajax Council, I wish you a safe and happy holiday season and all the best for 2021.”

- Mayor Shaun Collier, Town of Ajax
