Once again the annual Breakfast with Santa was a resounding success

Breakfast with Santa

On Saturday December 1st Santa and Mrs Claus made their annual appearance at the Scottish Rite wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and having their picture taken with all the children, young and old.  Christmas music played all the while and the Shrine clowns Buzzb (Bob Gordon) and Sir Tedley (Ted Burns) created balloon art for all the children.

Ken Wallace and his wife Denise and their crew arrived the evening before to set up the tables and chairs, putting on the table covers and placing the cutlery.  As the event Chairman Ken was also involved in organizing the volunteers who would be serving the food while Denise made sure that the children all received goody bags, something she has been doing since she and Ken took over running the Breakfast with Santa event.  

In the kitchen John Scott and his crew of volunteers arrived hours before the doors opened. Preparing bacon, eggs, toast and pancakes for well over 330 people is no small task

Judging by all the smiling faces the children had a great time.
