Breakfast with Santa

Our Breakfast with St. Nick has been a tradition for many years that has been enjoyed by the parish families and children.  Due to the COVID pandemic many events have been cancelled such as family gatherings, pasta dinner, Easter egg hunt, spring training at Ed Smith Stadium, Shrove Tuesday and the pancake breakfast.

Our council and Brother Knights were determined to continue the Breakfast with St, Nick tradition!  Thanks to approximately 21 Brother Knights, 6 wives and two young adult helpers we were able to successfully implement our traditional Breakfast with St. Nick.  It took a lot of time and talent to coordinate this event in a safe environment.  We made special arrangements to get the guests safely registered by taking their temperature, a special escort to their tables (elves) and meals and drinks were delivered to each of the 22 tables.  The 37 children were provided a musical instrument, twirling scarves, and a jingle bell bracelet to play along during the music and songs.  There were also crayons and coloring books at the table to entertain them while they were patiently waiting for breakfast to be delivered.  St. Nick came in thru the side door and went to all the tables giving out candy canes.  St. Nick had his chair set-up between 3 Christmas trees.  The elves helped St. Nick distribute the gifts such as plush toys, $10 gift card to Chick-A-Filet and some toys.
