On Sunday December 11th 2016 The Royal Canadian Dragoons hosted our annual Children’s Christmas Party. This year’s festivities were organized by B SQN, and held at the south side community center at Garrison Petawawa.
After weeks of preparation and planning, the big day had come. It was an early start for 1 troop as they arrived at 0645hrs to load their 20ft Christmas tree onto a trailer to be transport to the venue. As our setup neared completion and the hall was looking perfectly festive, families started to arrive. They were warmly greeted by Santa’s Helpers and directed inside.
The Christmas festivities were broken down into fun interactive events for everyone to enjoy. It all started with some ginger bread man decorating, face painting, a toddlers play zone and a massive bouncy castle. Shortly after, children and parents were quietly seated and dazzled by a magic show.
By then children and parents alike had workup quite an appetite, we all sat together to enjoyed a fresh Subway dinner. It wasn’t long after everyone had filled their bellies that we heard the pitter patter of Santa’s reindeer and the jolly greetings of Santa himself. He came for a visit with a bag full of gifts, children crowded around him in anticipation of hearing their named called out. As he handed out presents the room filled with joy and smiles.
As families departed, the halls were filled with the laughter and cheer. B Sqn felt honoured and privilege to host this year’s Children’s Christmas Party. We would like to wish all members of The Regiment current and past a safe and happy holiday season.
