At KWB we believe that family is important which is what we emphasized when we recently had our annual Christmas celebration.
We decided to do things a little differently this year and we involved the children and grandchildren of our staff in a party where we spent the day enjoying Edmonton’s history at Fort Edmonton Park.
We had a scavenger hunt that had us journey through time and explore the various buildings in the park. By reading the signs at the different buildings, we were able to collect the answers to our scavenger hunt questions. Once we thought we had all the right answers we brought the answers in to see if we had won the prize. This turned out to be a tough task, but everyone had a lot of fun trying.
To make sure we had energy to venture through time, we sat down to share in a meal at Eggie’s Barn. After that, we went on some sleigh rides (thank you mother nature for such a beautiful day) and then it was back to Eggie’s Barn for a special visitor – Santa!. Yes – Santa paid us a visit and brought all the children and grandchildren gifts, he even took a picture with the partners!
