See Santa at Kildonan Place

  • Print

I welcome this opportunity to extend best wishes to every Manitoban during the holiday season.

This is a time for us to reflect on the blessings in our lives, and to celebrate being together with family as well as give thanks for what we have. Concordia has many wonderful community events, especially during the holiday season.

As holidays draw near, many families are busy buying gifts and taking pictures with Santa. You will be happy to hear that Santa is at Kildonan Place Shopping Centre to take free pictures and hear what’s on children’s wish lists. Santa has been there since Nov. 17 and will stick around until Christmas Eve.

On Dec. 14, the Munroe Library at 489 London St. is hosting an event called Deck the Halls! for the whole family. There will be holiday stories and crafts, and this drop-in event will run from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is gearing up for its annual cross-country tour in the coming weeks. Winnipeggers will get to see the train stop on Monday, Dec. 2 at Molson Street between Panet Road and Munroe Avenue at 9:15 p.m. Each stop includes a stage show with musical performances, and attendees are encouraged to drop off non-perishable food items or a cash donation for local charities. Since the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train made its first tour in 1999, these events have raised $7.4 million and three million pounds of food for local communities.

Soon students will astonish their families yet again with their enthusiasm and acting skills as they perform in their annual school winter concerts. And schools in Concordia aren’t only organizing concerts. Kildonan-East Collegiate’s Culinary Arts students will host a Christmas Brunch Buffet on Fri., Dec. 6, beginning at 11 a.m. Reserve tickets for this popular event in advance — they always sell out!

Last but certainly not least, I will be joining Santa and his helpers at Valley Gardens Community Club’s Breakfast with Santa event on Dec. 14 at 9 a.m. to provide everyone who wants one with a nutritious holiday breakfast.  

It’s going to be a very busy holiday season! If you have any questions about these events or any other constituency matter, call me at 204-654-1857 or email me at Matt.Wiebe@YourManitoba.ca. Have a great holiday season!
