Our students and volunteers were busy little elves this past month preparing for the annual Shoppers World Brampton Santa Claus parade. The VAB Holiday Express train was constructed and decorated by our Arts & Crafts for Kids classes with self portraits in the windows and holiday themed cut-outs all over. Our students and volunteers enjoyed walking the parade route and handing out candy canes to the spectators. Thanks to everyone who participated, and thank you to Shoppers World Brampton for organizing the parade!
