Breakfast with Santa at St. Francis Manor was a fun event for all ages! Over 125 people including four generations of the Madolyn Braley, Gary Foster and Pat Johnson families gathered for an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. From babies to 95-year-olds, most enjoyed seeing the jolly elf; however, there were a few who couldn’t be coaxed with a candy cane to sit on Santa’s lap! Some of Santa’s elves better known as Seeland Park residents assisted with serving drinks and clearing tables. The event raised $1,787 to benefit the Hammond Center for Assisted Living Human Needs Fund.
