About the Presenter:
Bruce Templeton is an award-winning author of a number of books including The Man in the Red Suit, and In Search of St. Nicholas. Author proceeds from these books have gone to Rotary International’s Polio Plus Campaign. By accessing matching grants, sales of Mr. Templeton’s works have led to over 350,000 children receiving polio vaccinations.
Bruce has many accolades to his name: he is Canada’s only living member of the International Santa Claus Hall of Fame; he has been named a Knight of St. Nicholas; Red Cross Humanitarian of the Year, and has been inducted into the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador. He volunteers his time to numerous organizations including the St. John’s Rotary Club, Scouts Canada, The John Howard Society, and St. Andrew’s Church.
