On Santa's knee

Sawyer, left, and Peyton Jourdain took a seat on Mr. and Mrs. Claus' laps on Saturday at The Christmas Store (Lowey's Greenhouse & Market Garden) to tell them what they wanted for Christmas and have their picture taken by Travis Glowasky of Studio Gibbous. Santa reminded the children that chocolate chip cookies are his favourite to eat before placing presents under the tree.

Little carolers

St. Michael's students brought some Christmas cheer to Rainycrest on Friday afternoon when the kindergarten classes performed classic Christmas carols in Hallett Hall. Following their performances, the youngsters handed out Christmas-themed drawings to the home's residents.

Nativity scene

Students acted out the nativity scene yesterday afternoon during the dress rehearsal for the Christmas concert staged by St. Michael's French Immersion classes. A crowd of parents and grandparents filled the gymnasium to watch their little ones perform.

7 Gens building

Jarnel Contracting nearly has finished the Seven Generations Education Institute's new $16-million building on Agency One lands here. The 40,000 sq. ft. facility, which will house all of SGEI's programs, is set to open early in the New Year.

Advent service

St. Francis School's Junior Division celebrated an Advent prayer service at St. Mary's Church here Thursday evening. Children sang hymns and Christmas songs, said readings from the Bible, lit candles, blessed the Advent wreath, and prayed.

Christmas open house

A handful of people turned out to the open house at local MPP Greg Rickford's constituency office at 276 Scott St. yesterday afternoon. Baked goods and apple cider was enjoyed by those who came out. Mr. Rickford unfortunately could not attend in person as he was called away suddenly for an emergency sitting at Queen's Park.
