In keeping with tradition there was a pancake breakfast, Tim Horton’s Community Cruiser, pastries, hockey tournament, learning table, kids table, clothing tables, guessing game, turkey lunch, Santa arrived with presents for all and photo opportunities and bingo in the afternoon. Additions for this event were a scrapbooking corner, Christmas trivia contest and additional games in the floored room.
