Highlights from the 2016 Holiday Open House

With approximately 300 guests in attendance, this year’s “Candy Cane Lane” Holiday Open House was a huge success! This year, the festive event featured delicious baked goods from six employees in the Bite-Size Bake Off, a visit from Mr. Claus himself, a prize wheel, and clients, employees, and members of the community working together to decorate a tree. We’re thrilled to share some highlights with you!

Thank you to all of our volunteers who worked so hard to make the day happen. We’d also like to say thank you to Sarcee Plaza Starbucks for their generous donation of coffee for the enjoyment of our guests.

You’re Invited to our Holiday Open House!

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight, walking in a winter wonderland!

Although there are technically still 41 days left of autumn, it has begun to feel very winter-y in our lovely city already. The chilly weather and November snowfalls may make some of you want to curl up under a blanket until June, but we’re here to offer you an alternative: come celebrate the season at our Winter Wonderland themed Holiday Open House!

As in previous years, this is a free event, and open to everyone. For our event regulars, it’s a great opportunity to get together and enjoy some light refreshments. For newcomers, this can be an opportunity to learn more about our agency, and meet some of our clients and employees. And regardless of whether this is your first Holiday Open House or your tenth, you don’t want to miss out on our snowman competition or visit from Santa Claus!
