The Christmas Spirit is all around us
On Saturday, December 10, Santa and his little helper decided to make a special visit to the Royal Victoria Yacht Club and surprised all the good boys and girls. He sat down and listened to each child one by one and heard everything they wanted for Christmas. Each child also received a little goodie bag with a Kinder Surprise and other christmas treats inside.
While waiting for Santa though, the children decorated little gingerbread houses, which were pre-built by the Entertainment Committee so the kids could use their time making their gingerbread house extra special with all the trimmings.
Admission to this event was to bring an unwrapped toy or gift to be donated to children in need. By the end of the event, the Christmas tree was bursting with toys! Unfortunately, we couldn't snag a picture because the toys were wisked off, right away to ensure the recipients received them in time.
On Sunday, RVYC members and their guests enjoyed a delicious Christmas Brunch prepared by Chef Andrew Dickinson and his team. The Dining Room and Main Lounge were full of jolly individuals enjoying the Christmas Season.
Finally, on Monday, December 12 the staff had a night to let loose and enjoyed the staff Christmas party. All staff were given the option to purchase raffle tickets for prizes, and all of the money submitted went towards children in need. These donations went towards purchasing seven children gifts through the CFAX Santa's Anonymous toy and gift drive!
We have a few more festive functions to enjoy, then it's time for Santa to pay us a visit on Christmas morning.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
