Here comes Santa Claus

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus - I will bet you are already humming the tune. Christmas cheer abounds at the Branch; the trees have been beautifully decorated once again by our own in-house Santaís helper Lynn White.  The banquet halls are buzzing with Christmas parties and celebrations and everyone is primed and ready for the Santa Claus parade on Saturday, December 7th, starting and ending at our corner of Tamarac and Queen.  We always have refreshments ready for the band members and colour party after the parade, so come in and join us.

         The Kidsí Christmas Party is on Sunday, December 15th from 2:00 to 4:00 and I understand Santa is expected to arrive around 3:00 but there will be plenty to do while we are waiting; face painting, balloon art and lots more.  Santa will also be visiting Edgewater and Grandview to deliver Christmas Gifts on December 11th and 18th respectively.  The Colour Party is piped in by Charlie King, followed by Santa, with Marie Glaves at the piano for her 12th year leading our Wednesday singers in Christmas Carols.  Mark your calendars and come and join us.  We always need help handing out gifts and the extra voices would be welcomed.

         The Veteransí Affairs representative will be at the Branch on Tuesday, December 17th at 9:30 a.m. so if you have any issues or concerns, please come in and meet her directly, or call our Veteransí Affairs Service Officer, Murray Roberts at 905-701-1638 and he will assist you.  Her next visit will be in February.  

         Our Turkey Raffle is Friday, December 20th starting around 8:00 pm, and if you have already won a turkey elsewhere, we give out gift certificates so your whole Christmas dinner can be covered.  It is always a great evening, bring your friends and have some fun.  

         Donít forget our New Yearís Eve Party, tickets are $15 for advance sales or $20 at the door.  There will be a DJ, champagne and a late lunch.  Itís always a Ďsell-outí so move fast!
