Holiday Houses Light up the Community

Thank you to ALL the residents whose holiday lights have brightened up our community. PEHRA volunteers and our MLA Lorelei Nicoll toured the streets of Portland Estates and Hills looking for festive, colourful, and traditional decorating. These three pictured homes were drawn from each category to win a $25 gift card and a free PEHRA membership for 2023. Enjoy a drive in the community to see all the lights. PEHRA wishes you and your families a happy and healthy holiday season!
