…for many years along the path where we walk our dog behind Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, a small tree was decorated with festive bobbles and ornaments. Then suddenly one year there was a note near the tree advising that it would be the final year that the tree would be decorated. We could only imagine that the folks were moving on, or that a kindred senior soul was just finding it too difficult to navigate the woods and present this annual wonder to the community. A year passed and then my wife decided that we had to continue on this local tradition. So…our neighbours with us at dusk a couple of weeks back, decorated this small lonely tree along the path behind Sunnybrook. We hope that it will bring joy, reflection, smiles, hope and a sense of community to passers by. May this season bring much joy and a new year that is full of peace and harmony. Perhaps a lonely tree in the woods will help people think of how each of us can work to make this world a better place. Cheers to the Season. The very best to you and your community, your family, friends and a stranger passing by who might just gain a smile. @MolsonFerg

As the last day of “fall” reaches it’s end here in Toronto I wanted to extend the very best of the season to our readers, friends, partners and beer drinkers who follow the Molson Coors Community Blog. At this festive time of year we have a chance to reflect on the year past and look forward to renewed challenges of the new year. It’s time to pass along a little of the holiday spirit…like this small tree that my wife and I and neighbours decorate along one of the dog walking paths to put a smile on the face of passers by… (hey Torontonians…if you can tell me where it is I will even provide some samples for a holiday party to the first “six” to shout it out…cheers).
Thanks to all who partner with us in the community, to our business partners that help us bring the best in sport and entertainment to our beer drinkers and to our customers who help purvey our beers to those who thirst for our quality brews. A toast to our employees who ensure that quality, one case at a time…for over 225 years here in Canada ! To our fleet drivers that get the product to market. And… to our beer drinkers who help to guide us in our brewing and response to them to help make sure that Molson Coors delights our drinkers throughout the calendar year. Please be sure to make responsible choices this holiday season and all the best for 2012. Cheers! @MolsonFerg
Molson employees raised a toast the the accomplishment of donating 201 toys to the Toronto Shriners Toy drive this past weekend. At our employee Christmas luncheon on Friday December 12th, Kevin Boyce President and CEO announced that employees had donated 201 toys to the toy drive and that Molson was proud to match $10 per toy with $2010 in support of this worthy cause. Hats off to Bruce in the mail room for taking on this terrific initiative for the second year in a row and for helping us to help those in need in our greater community. There are still lots of opportunities for you to support your commumity with toy, clothing and food drives in communities across Canada. A small donation can make a huge difference for someone in a time of need.
