Santa Claus Came to Circle Project!

At Christmas, we love to celebrate with the families that we had the privilege to work with throughout the year. We were able to do this and more on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at the 22nd Annual Children’s Christmas Party. This year’s festivities were held at the new mâmawêyatitân centre.

Children and families were treated to a delicious brunch which was served by Regina Police Chief Evan Bray and 3 other senior officers, Heather Cote-Soop (U of S Nursing College) and staff from Circle Project. Children and families enjoyed face painting and a special show from magician Keegan Duck! Families in attendance were able to have their photo taken, printed on site and were able to take them home to remember the day. After a round of Christmas Carols, children sang “Here Comes Santa Claus” and who should appear but Jolly Old Saint Nick. Each child had a chance to meet Santa, received a goody bag and a wrapped gift! The event was wrapped up with a round dance with all who were able participating.

Thank you to the volunteers who came out to the event, Regina Police Service, U of S Nursing College, George Bird, Joni Adamcewicz and especially Santa Claus himself. Also, we can’t forget the cooks who also made this delicious meal possible. Thanks Dawn and the staff at the Infant Centre, Children’s Centre and the Big Circle. We would also like to thank the Elders from Circle Project’s Annual Elders’ Party who through their donations are able to share their holiday cheer with the children and their families.

Circle Project would like to express its sincere gratitude and appreciation to Unifor Local 1-S. Through the long term and continued support of your committee and its members, Circle Project has been able to spread Christmas cheer to numerous families year after year. We would also like to thank Farm Credit Canada who provided a generous donation which was collected from their staff during their dress down days which we applied to the expenses from the event. We also collected donations from the Elders who attended the 2017 Circle Project Elders Christmas Party. May the spirit of generosity continue to live in your hearts as we work together to make the community a better place for all.
