Santa recently visited some special boys and girls spending time at the Janeway Hospital as the holidays approach. Here is a very special moment we’re happy and lucky to be able to share thanks to Stephanie O’Brien – OZFM.
After hearing that a young girl named Neveah liked the coat she wore in the Downtown St. John’s Christmas Parade, Santa saw to it that she would become its owner. On his annual visit to the Janeway Children’s Hospital, he surprised her with the gift.
There is a video of the surprise here:

Last Thursday on September 29, 2016 Bruce Templeton launched his latest publication Twenty Four Teddy Bears: A Christmas Journey. This latest book, published by Creative Book Publishing, rounds out a trilogy for Templeton. His initial release, The Man in the Red Suit, garnered international attention and was a Globe and Mail best seller. The second book in the series equaled in its success, and was called The Man with the White Beard.
Like the initial two, this new book is meant to be read in the lead up to Christmas with each chapter corresponding with a date in the month. The stories profile the folks who were recipients of special teddy bears that Bruce, in his efforts as Santa’s assistant, helps get to people in Newfoundland and Labrador.
If you missed the launch, take a look at this video, then be sure to visit the signings and sightings section of the website for all of Bruce’s upcoming appearances.
