Habitat for Humanity joins with Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre for Christmas Fundraiser

Nov. 14, 2018 Morden MB. // The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre will be more festive than usual on November 24 when they hand over the museum to the Winkler-Morden Chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity is transforming the CFDC into a Christmas Wonderland for one day only and offering a number of different seasonal activities to visitors. Instead of paying admission to the CFDC visitors will be asked to donate to Habitat for Humanity.

“We wanted to create something unique and fun for the Christmas season,” said Habitat for Humanity event organizer Sue Nelson. “There’s nothing more unique in the region than the CFDC and so we brought the idea to them.”

The museum will be extending their winter hours for the event and be open from 10 am to 5 pm. Visitors can expect to find activities for children, a museum full of custom decorated Christmas trees, singing by a local children’s choir, pictures with Santasaurus and way more.

“When Habitat for Humanity came to us with the idea we jumped at the chance,” said CFDC executive director Peter Cantelon. “Part of our mandate is to give back to the community and this was a great way to do that.”

The opportunity to participate in a raffle and decorate Christmas trees will also be available to visitors as will refreshments.
