Breakfast With Santa Draws Large Crowd

Over 225 children and adults gathered for Breakfast with Santa and the Celebration of the Birthday of Jesus this past Saturday in the CHS Union.

Children were entertained by Silly Nilly the Clown who tied balloons in many different shapes and Brother Lee Barker with his magic tricks. Photos with Santa were taken by Wade Labat í´63 and Jennifer Knight from the CHS Public Relations department. The kids enjoyed decorating cookies, coloring stockings and having their faces painted. A delicious pancake breakfast was enjoyed by all.

The children brought toys and placed them in the manger to be distributed to Our Lady of the Lake Childrení´s ICU for children who will be hospitalized during the holidays.

Thanks to Monty Buckles í´93, event committee chairman and the alumni association board members and their wives who volunteered their time in setting up for and assisting with the breakfast. Thanks also to the Alumni and Advancement Office staff for their support and assistance.
