The Nanaimo Sunriser's host a Christmas luncheon for special needs children and their families.
The "children's" ages are from 2 to 52. The gifts are individually bought for each child according to what they asked for from "Santa" (passed on to us by their parents or caregivers) and wrapped by member Joyce.
Mrs. Clause is Lorraine Burley and members, spouses, friends and this year potential Circle K International I members from Vancouver Island University are helpers and volunteers.
THEY HAVE BEEN HOLDING IT FOR 30 YEARS
There is live music, which stirs some to dance, games and crafts, face painting, pizza for lunch, Santa to hand out gifts and goodie bags for all as they leave. I think we seniors enjoy it as much as the kids. It was a blast!
