Only two Santa workshop days left – December 16th and 21st!

We saw you there on the 16th – thanks to you all for your help!  


After a slow start to the season, volumes of letters to Santa have now picked up, and our first workshop last Wednesday was a resounding success. Some 30 members were on hand, and together more than 1,000 replies were written and mailed.

Only two workshop days remain this year, so it will be important to have all hands on deck to make sure children get their replies before the big day.  Thank you in advance to all our regulars – Santa simply couldn’t do it all with out you! And if you haven’t been involved in our Heritage Days before, please please PLEASE consider doing so this year – it’s a lot of fun… and every little bit helps lighten the load.  (As always, spouses are welcome!)

If you will able to help out either December 16 and/or 21, please take the time to register now with Claude at or Lise at

Remaining Heritage Days are on December 16 and a big final blitz on Monday, December 21. After Christmas replies will be on January 6. Spend an hour or the day – whatever time you have available is appreciated.

On the 16th, the private room on the ground floor of the cafeteria adjacent to Head Office at 2701 Riverside Drive. The door to Santa’s workshop will open at 10 a.m.

On the 21st, the workshop will move to the Conference Centre, as we blitz the remaining letters with employees in an effort to ‘clear the workshop floor’ before Christmas.  The doors will open at 9 a.m.

Please park at the Brookfield Road lot, which is closest to the cafeteria. Fees will be reimbursed from this lot ONLY (parking expenses from other nearby lots will be reimbursed only if the Brookfield parking is full).

If you plan to be there for several hours, please bring your lunch. Of course, you can simply purchase food and beverage at the cafeteria if you prefer.

For those of you who want to participate but cannot stay to do so, it is possible to reserve a bundle by contacting Claude the day before.  (Note that this option is not available for December 21, as all replies must be in the mail before the end of the day.)

Once again, please register for this activity with Claude Bruneau at or Lise Jette at
