Sinterklaas - St-Nicolas Event 2014
The Belgian Club of Victoria would like to invite you to our St Nicholas celebration on Sunday 7th December 2014, starting at 13.00h.
As St Nicholas and 2 (!) Black Pete's will be arriving in a very special way this year, we did have to relocate to the private function room upstairs at the Castle Hotel at 56 Courtney St. in North Melbourne.
There will be plenty of entertainment for the kids and a fine collection of beers and food to enjoy (incl.toasties with prepare americain, real frikandellen and Belgian waffles)
This yearly event is a classic for the kids to keep in touch with their culture and a great chance for the adults (with or without kids) to meet up with fellow Belgians in Melbourne.
If you would like to participate at this event, please bring 1 present per child with his/her name attached [first name and family name]. Accordingly it will be discretely placed in the kitchen at the side entrance (details to follow). St Nicholas and his 2 Black Pete`s will pick it up from there and hand it out to your child during the afternoon celebration.
St Nicholas will make his entry at 1.30 pm sharp, please arrive in time so your child can witness this amazing experience.
The cost to participate in this year's special event is $8 per child for BCV members and $15 per child for Non-members.
For this price your child receives a free softdrink, a St Nicholas bag with candy, an afternoon filled with St Nicholas related entertainment and the unforgettable experience of meeting the Holy man himself with plenty of time to take pictures.
On top of this we`re also organising our contest for the “Best St Nicholas Drawing”! Each child can bring his/her own “piece of art” which will be exhibited. The competition will have 3 categories: under 5 years, under 8 years and older. The Black Pete`s will be judging this year and there’s a nice prize for the winners!!
Following the yearly tradition, you have the opportunity to let St Nicholas say something personal about your child, before he hands out a present. Please email a few lines to firstname.lastname@example.org, if you'd like this special touch. (by Sunday 30th November the latest)
Please RSVP the number of attending children and adults by Sunday 30TH NOVEMBER (see form below).
See you all there !
