LWC Prepares for a Special Visitor

Standard

Lincoln Godzik visits with Santa Claus in December 2010 at LWC's annual Breakfast with Santa

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 litchfieldwomensclub@gmail.com.

Guess Who’s Coming to Town?

Standard

Litchfield’s favorite big fella in red is making his way to town once again  and you’ll find him at the Litchfield Women’s Club’s annual Santa’s Workshop pancake breakfast event on Saturday, December 11th.

While breakfast with Santa is surely enough to get the whole family up and at ‘em on a chilly December morning, there’s plenty more in store for guests who visit the Litchfield Middle School for this special event.

A hearty pancake and sausage breakfast will be served from 8 to 11 a.m. in the LMS cafeteria, and there will be visits with Santa beginning at 9 a.m. Santa, as always, will arrive in style via the Litchfield Fire Department’s fire engine.

Sandy Johnstone, a first grade teacher from Griffin Memorial School will be reading holiday tales to the kids, starting at 8:30 a.m. , while Aaron Cutler Memorial Library director Vicki Varick will be on hand throughout the event for families to sign up for library cards. A special elf has connected with the library to offer free books to kids in attendance as well. Santa sure loves books and will be delighted to see all the great reading going on!

Expect some terrific raffle prizes to vie for once again, and a new silent auction which will feature a baseball autographed by Red Sox player Marco Scutaro, along with a $50 Hannaford gift certificate and some other exciting items.

There will be games and a craft for children and of course, the opportunity to visit with St. Nick and take pictures of the kids, too. Be sure to bring along your own camera for this great photo opp with Santa!

Breakfast is just $4 for adults and $2 for children. All proceeds benefit the Litchfield Women’s Club Community Service and Scholarship Funds.
