JP Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Show and the wonderful folks from the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities who enjoyed a festive evening!

The city is abuzz with holiday cheer, strings of lights and holiday shoppers! In the spirit of the holidays, the FWS Group sponsored some of our Guest for a Day program participants to take in the annual JP Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Show. 

The city is abuzz with holiday cheer, strings of lights and holiday shoppers! In the spirit of the holidays, the FWS Group sponsored some of our Guest for a Day program participants to take in the annual JP Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Show. 

One of the groups sponsored for this event was the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities (SMD). SMD offers programs and services such as education, work training, counselling and therapy to Manitobans with disabilities. This helps connect volunteers with people who can use these resources to become more active in their community, participate in more activities and enjoy a greater level of independence. The lovely folks from SMD joined us at the festival this year in our Guest for a Day program, where they took in the sights, sounds and tastes of the festival for a day on us. 

The JP Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Show was a hit for all those that attended. We asked some attendees at SMD and they had wonderful things to say: “Fantastic show. Best time ever. Loved the music.” The music and the experience were highlights of the evening, Fred Penner was also a great part of the evening for attendees. But, the best part of all was sharing the evening with family, “it was father daughter bonding time with excellent music.”

We would like to thank all those who help our community programs, like the Guest for a Day program, thrive throughout the year. Providing opportunities for people to connect with music and join our festival community means so much to all who participate.
