Nevermind milk and cookies, Santa is all about the pancakes and sausage

Around 79 children and countless family members indulged in pancakes and sausages with Santa Claus in the 108 Community Hall on Dec. 1.

“It went well. It was a really good turnout,” said Donna White, one of the event’s organizers, admitting that there were fewer families showing up than last year and she didn’t know why. “But we still consider it a very successful event.”

Breakfast with Santa had at least 16 to 18 volunteers from the 108 Mile Ranch Community Association, the 108 Mile Volunteer Fire Department, 108 Mile Lions Club and even the 100 Mile Girl Guides and Pathfinders.

The Guides and Pathfinders provided children’s’ activities and face-paintings.

Donations of food items and money were also accepted. White said a large pale of food items and roughly $280 was raised.

“Any money and food collected are all going to be donated to the [100 Mile] Food Bank,” said Donna White.

The event was very similar to last year and will likely be the same next year as White said the flow of it is pretty good the way it’s been happening.

White also added that Santa and Mrs. Claus, who have been coming to the 108 Mile Breakfast for years, were great as usual.
