BSIA SKATE WITH SANTA 2017
What a fabulous event! On Nov 25th, we held our annual Skate with Santa at the
Langley Events Centre. Although the date was a little early this year, it didn't stop Santa,
(John Ryan from Masonite), from making an appearance, and it didn't stop the family
fun. Santa took time to hand out candy canes, take pictures and visit with the children
and their parents.
There was festive music playing, coloring for the children and plenty of coffee, hot
chocolate and gingerbread cookies for all to enjoy. On hand to help with the event was
Board Chair, Jay Secord and his family.
This appreciation event is a complimentary event held annually for members and
their families.
See you next year! Mark your calendars for November 24th, 2018.
