Winter Warm Up Fun!

Posted on

CGYHA held it’s first (and hopefully, annual)stacks-image-C40C086-450x318 Winter Warm Up at Swan on the Rideau on the evening of Saturday, January 30. The evening enjoyed a great turnout, a great vibe, and great music.

Peter Voith provided excellent musical entertainment with both his original arrangements and popular songs.

Many residents demonstrated their local knowledge by participating in the CGYHA Trivia Challenge. With their near perfect score, Christine Goodman and Sue Mather won a Warm Up prize pack of 2 CGYHA mugs, courtesy of Robert Weiss, 2 lbs. of locally roasted organic coffee courtesy of No Go Coffee Co and
a gift certificate courtesy of Swan on the Rideau.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Santa Party & Horse Drawn Trolley RidesSanta 2015

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.
