Last Sunday, November 29th, The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk held its Annual Child and Youth Christmas Party in Cayuga.
In recent years, the party has been hosted by the Cayuga Kinsmen who provide the hall, drinks and food at no cost. Kinsmen, Marc Smith stated, “This is an important event for us because Christmas is really about kids, especially for those that don’t have families.”
The Child and Youth Christmas Party has developed into a community event that has been supported for the past several years by various organizations and individuals stretching across both Haldimand and Norfolk Counties.
Highlights from this year’s party included a special appearance by Santa, magic show by Owen Anderson, cookie making activities, arts and crafts tables, pizza and pop. 304 children, youth and foster parents were in attendance.
Thanks to the following groups and individuals that helped make this year’s event so special: the Lynn Valley Lions Club in Simcoe, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Simcoe, Zellers, Walmart, the Poirier Family from Caledonia, The Cayuga Kinsmen and Laidlaw Carriers.
If you are interested in supporting or contributing to this event or others please contact the Society at 519-587-5437 or 1-888-227-5437.
