Wow has it ever been an exciting last couple of weeks. I am proud to announce that I’ve officially received my second Les Clefs d’Or Golden Keys!
It’s a huge honor not only to wear them on my lapels, but to have the “keys” to the city. I am one of 4000 new members internationally and one of four who received my keys for the Alberta area including Nella (Westin Edmonton), Jeff (Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise) and Udo (Corporate Affiliate Oxford Securities). I am a proud ambassador to the Hyatt Regency Calgary and a key component to making our guests feel like they’re at home during their stay. The have gained an abundance of knowledge and strong network that I’m excited to use to help guests with an array of options for their travels.
There are lots of different things going on in the city right now for the with holiday flare. If you haven’t checked out Zoo Lights at the Calgary Zoo I highly recommend it. The Zoo is in the setting of a winter wonderland. With over 100,000 lights glowing, this is a FAB outing with your family or friends. Remember to pack a thermos of hot chocolate… and maybe a little Bailey’s
The Nut Cracker will be showing from December 20-24th. As a “World Class Show” this is a FAB date night out and is sure to get you in the Christmas spirit. It is showing at the Jubilee Auditorium.
I am proud to announce that Hyatt Regency Calgary nominated Calgary Urban Project Society (CUPS) as our THRIVE* community grant partner this year, and we won! Through our nomination for consideration and their grant application we were able to secure CUPS an incredible $15, 000 USD grant to help improve the lives of Calgarians!
*THRIVE is a program builds on Hyatt’s belief that no one better understands a community’s most pressing issues – and their solutions – that those who live and work there.
Everyone from around the world have a very merry Christmas and healthy happy New Year. Thanks for all the kind words exchanged back on my blog and support. This has truly been a fun year and I enjoy sharing all of my experiences with you.
On Family Day, many people plan and take part in activities aimed to please the whole family, including visiting art exhibitions, watching movies, skating on outdoor ice rinks, playing board games and taking part in craft activities. Some communities plan special public events. It’s not uncommon for art galleries and museums to offer reduced prices or complimentary entry.
As the weather is usually very chilly in February, hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies are popular snacks. Other people use the long weekend as an opportunity for a short winter break or to travel to visit family members and friends.
Family Day falls on the same date as National Heritage Day, some people use the day to explore their personal heritage and family history. Great places to visit this Holiday in Calgary include:
