Thank you Santa

Stephen Trites, from Triboda Printing, acknowledged as the real Santa for all his work at the First Nations Friendship Centre

Who is the real Santa?

The real Santa is the person who lovingly gives to others just for the joy of giving.

The families who come to join us at the Pregnancy Outreach Program and the Early Infant and Child Development Program at the First Nations Friendship Centre have found a real Santa in Stephen Trites, from Triboda Printing.

He has been, for three years in a row, taking pictures of Santa with our families.

Not only does he give his time freely to our families, he provides all families with a beautiful set of pictures, containing one large, three regular and three small pictures for free.

On top of that, he makes sure the pictures are printed up fast, so the families can mail them to their loved ones in time for Christmas.

We all know how special these pictures are for families, as many families are unable to afford the costs for these pictures at this time of the year.

Thanks Stephen for being a true Santa to many families, creating memories and keepsakes for those special moments in our lives. Merry Christmas.


Caroline Huisken, Vernon
