It wouldn’t be December in Litchfield without a special visit from Santa Claus. Each year, the Litchfield Women’s Club welcomes Santa and his many fans and friends with a delicious all-you-can eat pancake and sausage breakfast.
This year’s big event will be held on Saturday, December 10 at the Litchfield Middle School from 8 to 10:30 a.m. The cost is just $2 for children, age 10 and under and $4 for everyone else over 10 years of age. The hearty breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, juice, milk and coffee.
Santa arrives each year by fire truck, with his merry elves, at 9 am and will be available for pictures from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Guests are invited to bring along cameras to capture the moment, and a $2 donation will be gratefully accepted to the Litchfield Women’s Club community fund.
What to do while you’re waiting to see Santa or are done with breakfast? There’s lots of fun games, tempting basket and gift certificate raffles, special guest readers from Griffin Memorial School and Santa’s Sweet Shoppe with lots of seasonal goodies to enjoy at the event or bring home for later. Mrs. Claus plans to visit as well to chat with youngsters and serve up tasty cookies.
Each year, the Litchfield Women’s Club’s breakfast with Santa benefits the nonprofit’s community fund which assists those in need in Litchfield, provides ‘scholarship’ money so middle school students can attend class trips, allows LWC to donate to other organizations in town, and assist wherever and whenever possible in the community.
The Litchfield Women’s Club is an independent nonprofit community service organization for women of all ages. The focus is on community, scholarship and friendship, and the club brings women together to share their interests, talents and enthusiasm to benefit the community and enable personal growth for its members.
The club meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in October, November, February, March, April and May at the Litchfield Middle School library at 7 p.m. Club socials are held off-premise in a variety of locations in September, December, January and June. LWC will host its annual holiday party on Tuesday, December 13 at Stage Crossing Clubhouse at 6:30 pm. New members are always welcome. To learn more, come to a meeting or email email@example.com.
