Breakfast & Santa

**FULL**

Space is limited and NO tickets will be sold at the door, all tickets are SOLD OUT!

We’re getting into that special time of the year again…

Our “Breakfast & Santa” is happening on Saturday, December 7, 10:00 to 11:30 am! A cozy morning filled with pancake breakfast, holiday crafts, caroling, and then a special meet and greet with the jolly ol’fella!

Registration is now open: in person or call 604-738-2819. There are 2 seatings: 10 am and 10:30 am – please indicate time preference upon registration.

Cost: $5/ adult, $2/child
(children under 1, FREE)

In our efforts of being more environmentally conscious, we are hosting a few days of exchange of gently used items for a more sustainable gift giving during this holiday season.

The goal is to have items which can be re-purposed as possible gift items. Families come with their gently used items and all can come and pick from the given selection. Exhange items must be clean, complete (especially with the puzzles), and intact.

Join us for any or all of these days of Holiday Exchange!

*Monday, December 9: Sweater Exchange
*Wednesday, December 11: Puzzle (500+ pieces also accepted) and Books Exchange
*Thursday, December 12: Scarf and Warm Clothing Exchange
*Friday, December 13: Cookies and Christmas Recipe Exchange

Just add water, this is great as gifts or stocking stuffers for your little ones and their friends for this holiday season!

Each special package comes with both dry and wet ingredients (*with one colour of your choice) – all you’ll need to provide is boiling water. Give as a gift or share the experience with your little one by making it together!

*Place your order with Salena on your next visit or call 604-738-2819. Colours to choose from: red, yellow, blue, or green. Last day to order by Wednesday, December 18.

Hanukkah Celebration

Join us on Tuesday, December 10th during our Drop-In for a sweet Hanukkah celebration! We will gather and listen to a special story, sing some songs, engage in a craft activity, and enjoy some treats! Hope to see you there!

Dear Families,

As you know, West Side Family Place is a non-profit organization. We are the only affordable, accessible and inclusive family resource program offering a daily drop-in for children and their caregivers on the West Side.

We do our very best to receive the majority of our funding from outside sources. However, the grants we receive do not cover all of the operating costs for our Play and Learn Family Drop-in and Parenting Education Programs. For this reason, West Side Family Place asks that all users become members of our society.

Your $40 membership entitles you to:

  • Participate in Family Place programs
  • Borrowing privileges for both the Resource and Toy Lending Libraries
  • Quarterly newsletter digitally sent to you via email.
  • Reduced rental rates for birthday parties, meetings and social gatherings
  • Voting privileges at the Annual General Meeting

Please complete a membership form and return it to Family Place. We are able to take cash, credit card and cheque (payable to West Side Family Place) payments.  If for any reason you are unable to pay the membership fee, please speak to staff and we would be pleased to offer you a complimentary membership.

If you are able, please consider making a charitable donation of $35, $50, $100 or any amount you can afford. Family Place provides tax receipts for charitable donations over $10.

On behalf of the board and staff, thank you for being part of the Family Place community!

Sincerely,

Diane Elliott-Buckley

Executive Director
