Ho Ho Ho. Santa here. I’m so excited to meet with you all however I can during this year’s 2021 Holiday Celebrations in Muskoka Lakes!

This year I can Zoom into your own living room for an interactive Story Time with Santa on Saturday, November 20th at 2pm or we can have a private Zoom visit together on Thursday, December 9 from 5 to 7:50pm (Choose your time for your one-on-one visit).

Plus, the whole community of Muskoka Lakes can get involved, too, by taping short Holiday Messages that will be shared on social media and right here on the Muskoka Lakes Chamber website and YouTube!

Here are all the Details to share with your Parents!

Tape a 30-40 second message from your company or community group’s team and we’ll share on social media and put it ‘on parade’ on this website! Send your message to chamber@muskokalakeschamber.ca via the free WeTransfer.com application (it’s free and easy to use). We supply music. Please don’t add your own music as social media may not let your message play.

Thank you to the Harry Debes Family Foundation and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for partnering with the Chamber on these new holiday celebrations in Muskoka Lakes. We couldn’t produce these events without their support.

THANK YOU SANTA for STORY TIME WITH SANTA ON NOVEMBER 20th AND FOR STORYTIME FOR MUSKOKA LAKES PRESCHOOL!

DOING EVEN MORE TO SPREAD CHEER FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Thanks to donations from the Harry Debes Family Foundation, which focuses on families, and help from local volunteers led by Sheila Overbeek of Overboard and Jan Turner of Turner Waterproofing Systems, former parade marshalls, our community is taking care of children across Muskoka Lakes.

How?

  • Gift Bags to all Elementary School Children in Muskoka Lakes with Santa delivering to Glen Orchard and Watt Public Schools.
  • Grocery Gift Certificates to High School Students living in Muskoka Lakes via Gravenhurst High School and Bracebridge and Muskoka Lakes Secondary School.

No child should go hungry. Every child should feel special.

Thank you to our volunteers and donors for making these gifts possible.
