Kris Kringle Luncheon
Our 29th Annual Kris Kringle Luncheon was a tremendous success. We look forward to seeing everyone again in December 2015. The Luncheon provides a delightful and delicious way to usher in the holiday season. The Luncheon has become one of the City's must-attend events. The Child Development Centre would like to offer its sincere thanks to everyone that made our last Luncheon such as success, including everyone that came out for lunch, our staff and volunteers, and all of the donors and sponsors. We couldn't do this with out you.

The Legend of Kris Kringle
Throughout the world there are many differing practices and stories surrounding the Christmas season. Kris Kringle's Scandinavian legend states that over Christmas, people would make wishes to God. It was St. Nicholas responsibility to carry their requests up to heaven. Kris Kringle was given the privilege of delivering the fulfilled wishes back to the people. Kris Kringle is represented as a Viking at our Luncheon because of his Scandinavian origins.
