Thanks to Santa and his elves

Bob Handel of the North Oyster and Area Historical Society thanks everyone involved in the Breakfast With Santa.

Editor:

A special thanks to all those who worked tirelessly to make Breakfast With Santa at Cedar Community Hall a great success once again!

Hundreds of children and their families enjoyed whipped cream-topped pancakes and sausages, decorated cookies, made crafts and had their faces and nails painted.

Santa listened to each child’s requests and had his picture taken before having to continue his busy schedule on the North Oyster fire truck.

Raffle winners this year were Paula Shupe, Wayne Hawthornthwaite, Carrie Sheptycki, Bob Gillrie, Carolyn Nelson, Sharon Knight, Aaron Steen and Gladys Dikken.

Again, the North Oyster and Area Historical Society would like to thank all of those businesses who support this exciting annual event. Our success depends on your valuable contributions.

Bob Handel

President, North Oyster and Area Historical Society
