JOIN US FOR A VERY LEGO CHRISTMAS
~ LEGO DISPLAY EVENT ~

 

Ho Ho LEGO

 

The Ranchlands Community Association would like to invite EVERYONE in the GREATER CALGARY AREA (this means YOU) to their first ever Ho Ho LEGO Event!  Build a LEGO creation and bring it to the Community Center to show it off.  Wear your Tacky/Ugly Christmas Sweater and other Christmas gear.  This is a fund-raiser:  100% of the proceeds from food sales and donations received at this event will be donated to the Ranchlands Christmas Adopt-A-Family.


Don't have time to pre-register?  Bring your LEGO Creations, registration form and $5 fee to the Ranchlands Community Center before 10:20am on Dec 14nd.


No Registration for the Tacky Christmas Sweater portion of the event.  Please bring a donation for the food bank.

Your Mission......

.... "should you choose to accept it"......... is to spread the word about our new event.  Shout it from the roof tops.  Put up Posters.  Send emails to your friends.  Get the details out on social media sites.  LIKE us on FaceBook.  The more people who know >> leads to more new friends to meet, and a larger, more entertaining event (and larger prizes).  Please, be our "word-of-mouth" advertiser.  Thank you, in advance.

Just Come For A Look

    Are you and your family interested in coming to see the displays and wild Christmas attire but not participating in the competition?  You are of course, WELCOME.  There is no fee to come view the displays - we ask that you bring a donation to the Food Bank.
