Santa Claus is coming to town. Burlington's 52nd annual Santa Claus Parade will feature bands, colourful floats, mascots, and jolly old Gil Verwey himself riding the Zamboni. Gil has donated his time and the zamboni for 7 years now!
BOHC volunteer extraordinaire, Gunther Kaschuba is once again Chairman of the whole event. He puts in a lot of time here and is supported by a cast of 10-15 BOHC players who act as BOHC ambassadors collecting coins to help cover the event costs. If you’re out there this Sunday – please drop in a toonie for the helpful BOHC player volunteers as they walk along the sides of the route. And Gunther – THANK YOU for representing us so well in the Community!
This year's parade starts at 2:00 pm, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017
Thanks as well to all the players and their wives for joining us at the Legion this weekend for some live music, dancing and a few games. We were close to full capacity this season and Lloyd Millar’s band Speakeasy were fantastic! Thanks to Colin Ashdown and thanks to all of you that lent us the support for a great event.
The proceeds from the tickets your team purchased helped start to build our Food Bank charity donation for this season. Please continue to support our BOWSER ladies as the Food Bank really appreciates everything you do for our families that need a little help.

BOHC people are the BEST! What a great league we play in!
