Return on the 2009 Wrapping Weekend

Katimavik à l'oeuvre

T’was two weeks before Christmas and hundreds of Elves gathered at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf for a massive gift wrapping effort : more than 3,400 gifts in two days.

Apart from an unexpected and unfortunate parking shortage which complicated things on the Saturday, the wrapping weekend went splendidly. In fact, the wrapping part was finished Sunday at 2 PM. The last two hours were spent packing up the equipement, loading the trucks and putting the halls back in their classroom configuration.

Au shipping

An immense thank you goes to the wonderful staff at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf who make it all so easy for us Elves to do our jobs. Other thanks go the hundreds of wrappers -individuals and groups-, to the kind folks who helped out on the Friday night to set up the space and unpack the equipment & material, and to those with strong arms who load and unload trucks with abandon. Without you all, the Little Elves’ mission would be impossible to accomplish.
