Breakfast with Santa Event Hosts Over 100 Attendees with Each Child Receiving a Gift from Santa

The Carlinville Elks Lodge hosted a Saturday morning Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 10th, 2022. The event consisted of a free breakfast, coloring and a picture with Santa. Kids and their parents were treated to a breakfast consisting of donuts, fruits, milk and juice. The Elks Lodge also purchased toys to give away to all of the kids. After breakfast, the kids were all able to go sit and talk with Santa. While kids waited they could color, sit in a reading corner were an Elk member read them children books, or play with a different assortment of games. After meeting with Santa, each child received at least one gift and a treat bag to take home. With cameras in hand, parents took pictures of their child with Santa to take home as a keepsake. There were over 100 attendees, with over 70 children, all whom were able to take home a large gift item from our gift table this year!
