Santa Bus makes stop in Lake Country

Ho ho ho

Lake Country residents enjoyed a trip from Santa Thursday as he made his way around Lake Country on his Santa Bus.

Driven by bus driver and Coun. Bill Scarrow, families enjoyed a visit from the Santa Bus this week as it made its way through the Central Okanagan. The Santa Bus carried Santa and his helpers to 30 bus stops collecting food, toys and cash donations. All donations were donated to the Central Okanagan’s Salvation Army’s hamper program this year.

HR manager Holly Flinkman with the district encouraged her young daughter Clara Flinkman, 4, to be generous and participate in the #giveback movement, so she brought in a box of stuffies and $4 that Clara wanted to donate from her piggy bank. - Contributed
