Children and families brought their letters to Santa requests to Santa outside Original Pete’s Confectionary during the afternoon of December 7. Pictured above, left-right, are Zac Therriault, Annie Therriault and Max Therriault. It wasn’t too cold for the jolly old man in the red suit to work in the outdoors. Besides listening to the requests and asking if they had been naughty or nice throughout the year, Santa gave all of the children treat bags. Other Christmas events have been held in the last few weeks, including a Christmas Party for residents of the Villa Beausejour in Falher on December 8, and Georges P. Vanier held their Christmas concert on December 13, so check this week’s paper.
