Santa Party & Horse Drawn Trolley Rides
We had a great turnout at our Santa Party at the CG&Y Clubhouse, including a visit from the Jolly Old Elf himself!
Kids enjoyed making marshmallow snowmen, colouring pages and face painting. Everyone shared some holiday cheer with snacks and refreshments.
Two of our students focused on the importance of giving by selling their handmade Christmas crafts and greeting cards and raising $50 for Welcome Box.
The party was followed by horse-drawn trolley rides through a circuit in the neighbourhood. The entire event felt a lot like Christmas despite the warmer temperatures and lack of snow.
Thanks to the staff at Carleton Golf & Yacht, The Scharfs and their horse team, St. Nick, our helpers – Grace and Piper and our Events Director, Denae Moores, who put on such a wonderful event.
