From Babies to 90 Year Olds – Breakfast With Santa Is A Hit

Breakfast with Santa at St. Francis Manor was a fun event for all ages! Over 200 people including four-generations of the Hanssen family gathered for an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. From babies to 90-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!  Not only did Santa’s elves join in the festivities but so did Mrs. Claus who was a hit with all of the kids!  Santa’s helpers were festive in their Christmas sweaters as well as the culinary staff in their seasonal aprons! The event raised over $1,500 which will be matched by Ken and Mary Eggman’s matching pledge towards the purchase of a new handicapped-accessible van for resident transportation.
