I retired from my law practice and immediately traveled to Winnipeg to spend a week on location with the filming of The Christmas Club. I’ve been talking and posting about the experience all over social media and I promise I’ll stop soon, but it really was the experience of a lifetime.
The outrageously talented and hardworking cast and crew were beyond kind to Brian and me. They even gave us parts in the background (thank you Jon and Sydney!).
