Santa’s Workshop is TOMORROW! – Thursday December 8th

Trafalgar’s third annual Santa’s Workshop will be held on December 8th (TOMORROW!)  The workshop gives all our little elves the opportunity to purchase gifts for their loved ones for only $1 per item.  Proceeds from this event will be donated to Covenant House as well as another local charity.
Please remember to send your elves to school with pockets full of toonies and loonies to do their Christmas shopping. The organizers have suggested it may help our youngest elves (Kindergarten, Grade 1 and 2 students) to send their money in a baggie along with a note of who made it on their nice list.

If you would like to help volunteer for this fun event, please contact Jennie at jennieclaire@hotmail.com
