Annual Santa’s Workshop HELD

Dec. 19, 2015

Bay St Lawrence Community Centre

kids attended Santa’s workshop and picked out a gift or two for a family member for free. After they picked out a gift took it over to the wrapping station (either wrap it yourself or a helper will help you ) to wrap it up.

Kids one stop shopping. There was also a craft table! Drinks & cookies were available. The gifts were free for the kids to choose from.

Naturally Active Victoria County was in attendance supporting with Christmas apples, oranges, candy canes & Tim Horton’s tim bits (Complimentary from Holly & Errol MacInnis, Baddeck Tim Horton’s, THANK YOU)

Jeannie Bonnar had great help (again) from the community just like in the past. Jeannie  put on Santa’s Workshop again in 2015 as she looked for used or new donations for gifts for the kids and youth to wrap for their family members for Christmas.

Jeannie loved seeing kids faces when they are having fun and trying to keep a secret from their parents or their siblings when they have a gift for that person.

Please contact Jeannie Bonnar at 902-383-2212 with questions.
