2017 Riverbend Community Association Visit with Santa a Huge Success !

The Santa event was a huge success!  Over 70 children participated! (Not including their parents).   We had just enough supplies to ensure each child got to decorate, paint and see Santa. 

The event was held on December 10, 2017.

Comments from parents were:

 “Wow what a great event.  It’s great to come to events in this community.”

“I wish there were more events like this.  This was excellent.”

“I wish more happened here.”

“I can’t believe this is free to community members.” 

“I hope this will be put on again next year”.

Many people said this was the only opportunity for their children to see Santa.  The children loved the events we had for them.  The Santa photos were always going from the minute Santa came until Santa left.  

Thank you everyone for your support.  Thank you also to Mission Hill Church for giving us extra time to set up. 

A special thanks to Frieda Wiebe, our Hall Manager, for getting things together, finding/booking, helping from beginning to end with the event, and to our Ward 12 Councilor Shane Keating who provided the funding for it.
