Wow...What a great turnout for the 12th Night Bonfire Celebration - Burning of the Green on Friday, January 3, 2020.
The Rotary Club of Alliston has been holding this event for over 35 years. This year we had a crowd of about 600 people thanks to the warm weather and great publicity. The fire was lit at 6:30pm by the New Tecumseth Fire Service volunteers. Some of these firefighters came to our bonfire night as children with their parents. 
Thank you to Rafee from Country Meat Cuts.
Thank you to all the volunteers(Rotarians, Interact members, friends and family) who collected trees the day before and helped out at the event on Friday night! We had great coverage by CTV Barrie and New Tecumseth Times Newspaper. Special thanks goes to the New Tecumseth Fire Service for lighting up the fire and keeping us safe, Rotary Club of Palgrave for their Chuck Wagon and volunteers, Town of New Tecumseth for their support, Country Meat Cuts for providing the Hot Dogs and Hot Chocolate, Alan and Jane Ann Downey for their straw bales for seating, Nu-tek Electric for lighting and generator, George Scott and Dave Green for organizing the event.
