Elaine Aronyk         Some of the activities include: the Fish Pond, the Hospital Room, Santa’s Wears, and Trim a
Judy Bacchus          Tree among many others. Santa has made the Festival of Trees a priority and will be at the

Carol Cameron         list and mail it to the North Pole. The entertainment on the Festival stage will continue during
