Thank you very much for supporting the Vanier Christmas Craft and Trade Show business venture. The students did an amazing job on Saturday! The silver plate donation brought in $1127.30 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. They had over 56 vendors and 1010 people attended the trade show. They still have work to do and I know they will be donating more money to their charity; however, if you get the chance please congratulate them on their business venture!
