Winter Fair Goody Bag pre-orders are due by FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6!

Planning for the Children’s Winter Fair has taken us in a completely new direction! We’ve had to re-imagine how we might continue to share the magic of the season with the children in our community while keeping COVID safety at the forefront of our decision making. We have decided to provide a take-home experience, in the form of a Winter Fair Goody Bag, rather than host an event on campus.

In addition to celebrating our children, the Children’s Winter Fair has served as our most significant fundraising event in recent years. We know that the events of 2020 have hit many of us hard financially; therefore, we have decided to make the Winter Fair Goody Bags available by donation!

Each Goody Bag will have a surprise Pocket Lady treasure, materials for a Yule log with a candle, materials for a paper star, white paper for a snowflake cutout, a miniature wooden snowflake, a caramel apple, and a booklet with ideas, instructions and winter verses.

You have two steps to take to secure Goody Bags for your children, friends, and family:

1 – Sign up for the number of Goody Bags you would like to order and choose your pickup time for Saturday, November 21 https://signup.com/go/KeggGcA
2 – Head over to our donation page and donate what you can https://www.vws.ca/givingtuesday

When our first Kindergarten hosted the Fair 50 years ago, the original impulse would be a magical seasonal gift created by parents for the children. We are committed to honouring that impulse as we reflect on the time, attention, and care dedicated to the Fair by thousands of parents, guardians, and grandparents over the past 50 years.
