Celebrating the holidays in Roblin

Published in December, 2019 Metro and Headliner

For many Manitobans, the holidays are the highlight of their winter season. It means meeting and celebrating with family members, good food, lots of love and laughter, making new memories and reminiscing about old ones. Despite the cold weather, the holidays are a warm and happy time of year.


This is my first holiday season as the MLA for the new constituency of Roblin which represents the communities of both Charleswood and Headingley. It was an especially exciting treat for me to get to spend time in Headingley celebrating as the MLA for the first time since 1998.


The holidays were celebrated by a few of the amazing community centres in the constituency of Roblin. I was honoured to attend two great events and serve breakfast with some wonderful volunteers. The annual Headingley Community Christmas breakfast was jam packed with attendees. Located at the Headingley Community Centre, this breakfast had guests of all ages enjoying pancakes and sausage, as well as coffee and juice.

The community centre placed a beautiful and tall tree in the foyer next to their rainbow auction table. There were great prizes and wonderful volunteers running the auction. After serving pancakes, I was lucky enough to meet Santa!


In Charleswood, Varsity View put on a fantastic Santa Breakfast at the Varsity View Community Centre on Laxdal Road. There was a great turnout of Charleswood families and a great group of volunteers running the event. I served pancakes and sausage and even got to sit down and enjoy a plate myself! Santa, being the busy man that he is, made it to Varsity View as well as Headingley, and the kids were so excited to meet him and have their picture taken with him.


I am so grateful to all the volunteers who rally together to put on these wonderful community events. These events that make Charleswood and Headingley the homey, warm and inviting communities are so important to me. To be able to meet with neighbours, see old friends and make new ones, is just one of the many reasons I am honoured to represent the constituency of Roblin.
