TIME TO HELP SANTA – Blitz Day Monday, December 18

A reminder that Monday (December 18) is Blitz Day. Please join us in the conference centre at head office (2701 Riverside Drive) for a full day of letter writing as we aim to leave the North Pole Post Office with a clean floor before Santa heads out on his grand Christmas Eve adventure. Monday is the last day for Santa to mail his replies back to ensure delivery before Christmas. Doors open at 9:00 a.m. Lunch and snacks will be provided by Canada Post. Parking (maximum $7.50) is also covered by Canada Post. Please provide your receipts to Lise Jette at Blitz Day or via email (treasurer@bytownchapter.com). If you plan to attend Blitz Day please email Christiane Tailleur (lesrochon@videotron.ca) so your name can be added to list being provided to security for access to the building. We hope to see you on Monday!

CHRISTMAS EVENT – Saturday, December 9 – Sucrerie de la Montagne

We ate. We drank. We sang. We danced. We laughed. We threw axes. Thankfully not in this order…

The 2017 By-Town Heritage Club Holiday event was a great success last night. We travelled to the Sucrerie de la Montagne in Rigaud (QC) for a wonderful Quebecois celebration of the holiday. The food and drink was plentiful, music was roe-tapping worthy. We created a room full of laughter, friendship and warmth. It was a great way to celebrate the holidays.

If you joined us on this trip, please provide your comments below (all comments welcome!). We are already considering next year’s activities and would love your feedback.

Wishing all our members a very merry Christmas, a joyous holiday season and a safe and fun-filled time with family and friends.
