Lions host Breakfast with Santa at the PCCC Dec. 7

It’s your chance to whisper in Santa’s ear with weekend

Get your Christmas wish list ready because your chance to whisper it into Santa Claus’ ear in person is coming next week. The jolly old elf is the guest of honour at the Parksville Lions’ Breakfast with Santa on Dec. 7 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

“We want everyone to come,” said Gail Vulliamy, president of the Parksville Lions.

Vulliamy said the morning will include a traditional pancake breakfast served with hot drinks and juice. There will also be grab bags for the kids.

As for the main attraction, Santa will arrive around 9:30 or 10 a.m.

“It’s hard to tell what time Santa will arrive, you know,” said Vulliamy.

Kids will have the chance to meet Mr. Claus and let him know what they want to find under the tree.

Parents and grandparents are reminded to bring their cameras to capture the moment.

Admission to the event is by donation. All proceeds from the event will go to saving the helicopter at the Community Park by bringing the piece of playground equipment up to safety standards.

The Lions would like to thank their sponsors for the event: Thrifty Foods, Tim Hortons, Quality Foods, Smitty’s, McDonalds, Save-on-Foods, What’s On Digest and Parksville Chrysler Dodge Jeep.
