We served pancakes and sausage to over 600 people during Breakfast with Santa Saturday, December 13th, for the Lincoln School PTO.
Santa was there to visit with the boys and girls, Lincoln School parents made cookies and candies, and several of the children participated in school Christmas programs.
Once again, Tim Moss deserves credit for coordinating the whole thing and thanks to all the Kiwanis members who helped out.
We took boys and girls, whose names we received from the school district, Shopping with Santa on Saturday, December 20th
We gave each child money to spend on gifts for their families and we bought a present for each child. Those presents were presented to the child by Santa. We also bought a roll of wrapping paper so the families could wrap the presents at home.
Thanks to all the Kiwanis members, and volunteers, who helped make it a brighter Christmas for several boys and girls.

We enjoyed a special Christmas dinner Tuesday, December 16th, and entertainment from David Quesal of Macomb and his puppets. Delicious prime rib dinner for the adults, chicken strips and fries for the kids.
Due to poor photo from Tuesday night, we are re-running this picture of David from the last time he visited us in 2011.
