Viceregal Christmas Address 2008

Christmas Blessing for Caledon

Through trials and tribulations. We still stand. We are still here.

I address our endurance.

2008 has been interesting times to be certain. An emotional Relay was run, a spectacular showing of our people, 7 of which logged among the official top fifteen runners. Many more ran all night as well. Financial difficulties have raised their heads, leaving us with an uncertain 2009. America has had an unprecedented Presidential election. Linden Labs has made a series of baffling announcements that have altered the shape of our landmass. Our first in the flesh Caledon meet-up in Saint Mary's, Ontario.

Some died.

And we are still here.

Faces have come and gone, some stay awhile, then fade off over the horizon. To those, I wish farewell, good grace and fortune and great happiness.

To those who remain and are yet to come, I wish good grace and fortune and great happiness and much welcome. Welcome to our home.

Peace and joy to you, Caledon. May you do as you've always done, worked together, played together, struggled with and sometimes fought one another. And always coming back to support one another.

And we are still here. Together.
