Christmas Caravan 2016

On the Friday night prior, several friends and neighbours gather in my garage, eager to tape and prepare 100’s and 100’s of boxes ready for Sunday’s collections.

On Sunday morning, the transport trailer arrives bright and early and all the cartons are loaded, tables set up, garbage bins readied and the packaging team assembled. Everyone arrives at the Markland Plaza, volunteers, three straight trucks, police escort vehicles, a fire truck, our tractor trailer, sound vehicle and even Santa Claus. We are ready to go...

Many people questioned the size of our rental truck…some even laughed…have faith we told them!
