Santa visited the Fraser Coast Swiss group Dec-2016
The kids and some adults enjoyed a swim in the cool pool. We were a group of 22 and had lot’s of yummie food. One couple joined us for the first time.
Santa from Sweden arrived in a beautiful outfit and his real white (bleached) beard. He had gifts for the kids and the adults could buy a gift as charity for local Radio Satellite Station and towards travel cost from the faraway “Northpole”.
The Winner of the “Grittibaenz” baking competition was a “Clown” with 56 points. The children’s creations got 3rd with 47 points and their father 2nd with 51 points.
Next get-together will be “Easterbunny”. Location TBA.
Why not make an effort to meet others this year and make new friends? I hope we can motivate some more families to come for lunches or dinners in Restaurants – which will be organised asap.
