Once more the Quyon Lions' Club Santa Claus Parade, held Saturday December 9, was a great success. Warmly-dressed families lined the streets to enjoy the decorated floats, horses and of course, St. Nick himself. As the Beach Barn is conspicuously absent this year, the parade's normal route was reversed, with participants gathering at the Ste. Marie's Catholic church parking lot and walking down the hill to the intersection with Clarendon. From there, the parade continued to the Onslow Elementary School gym where hot food and drinks were served as kids lined up to speak to Santa about a few important matters.

Vehicles of all shapes and sizes were decorated as part of the parade, including this sweet ride by Dennis and Marie-Jeanne St. Laurent

A beautiful sight: a trailer packed with happy members of the Young, Bernier and Hamilton families and their friends.

Dear old Santa. It's so nice that he seems to know everyone's names, don't you think? Ho ho ho!

According to Lions Club member Rolly Bernier, there were more children at the Santa meet and greet than ever before, including a large amount of babies. The Lions wish to thank the Quyon Lionettes for preparing and serving the food, Onslow Elementary School for the use of the building and special gratitude to the fire department for bringing so many vehicles and so many fire fighters.
