Wow! What a fantastic day in Brooklin with the Santa's Reindeer Workshop! We were very pleased that Santa was able to spend the day with us as well. Special thanks to all of our sponsors who really helped make this event such a success. Thank you to all the families that donated non perishable food donations to the Salvation Army. Group74 is proud to host events such as this one to bring our community together, while giving back to local charities.

Group 74 is excited to announce that we are hosting our own Santa's Reindeer Workshop this festive season. Last year we had an incredible response to this event that sold out very quickly and we anticipate this year's response to be the same. Spaces are limited.

Join us at the Brooklin Community Centre at 8 Vipond Road on Saturday, November 28th with a morning session from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and an afternoon session from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, as we host a very special workshop for the children.

Tickets are $15.00 per child ages 3 and up. Group 74 is asking all parents that bring the "Reindeer in Training" to our event to each bring a non perishable food donation for the Salvation Army Food Drive.

As each child arrives, they will work their way through ten stations, get their official passport stamped each time, and end in a Reindeer Inspection right before they visit Santa! Arrive a child, leave as one of Santa's Reindeer! Please make sure to bring your own camera to capture the moment.

Young Reindeers in training will make their very own Reindeer crafts courtesy of Station Gallery. Crafts are suitable for a range of abilities and ages.

You don't want to miss: "Reindeer Story Time" at the Brooklin Library! Stories will be read at 10:30, 11:00, 2:00, and 2:30.

Charities of Choice:

The Christmas season is so special to Group 74, our community and we are thrilled to announce that we have selected 2 charities to support during our Santa's Reindeer Workshop!

Our selected charities include:

  • Salvation Army Food Drive
  • Salvation Army Community Care Ministries


Salvation Army

Salvation Army will once again be on site at this year's Santa's Reindeer Workshop to collect food donations for local families.  Families are invited to bring in donations and drop them off outside in front of the Brooklin Community Centre & Library.  The Salvation Army Truck will be outside all day accepting donations from the entire community!

The Salvation Army Community Care Ministries:

We visit various nursing homes and retirement homes in Whitby and once a month we we do a service there with residents. At Christmas we go to the homes and each resident receives a "Sunshine Bag" filled with goodies for them. Also included in the bags are shawls and afghans. We also send gifts throughout the year to the sick and shut ins at home. Meals are made for seniors that have had surgery or are sick.  Visiting patients in hospital, taking people shopping for groceries, sending cards and phoning the sick are also included in our ministry.

There’s no greater way to strengthen your community then to participate in events that involve the training of children
