The sixth annual Breakfast with Santa is this Saturday, Dec. 14, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at HMB Community School. Come enjoy a delicious pancake and sausage breakfast, hot chocolate, coffee and tea, a table with elf helpers to write a letter to Santa, and face painting. This is a wonderful family and community event sponsored by Halfmoon Bay School and the Community Association. SCRD director Lori Pratt will be there supporting the event by waiting tables. There will also be carol singing, popcorn, guessing games and more, $6 for adults, $4 for kids. Prices include a photo with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Get your jingle on!
Bring something for the Food Bank and you can enter the hourly draw. And please bring your own plates, cutlery, and a cup if you can.
Great things happen when a community comes together. Thanks to everyone who generously donated and supported the HMB Elementary School Breakfast program, and the Christmas Hampers for the families in need. So far over $3,000 of the $5,000 goal has been raised. We hope our goal can be reached by Christmas. There is still time.
Sometimes circumstances beyond our control can create a critical situation. Loss of a job, relationship breakdown, health issues, etc. can be a big blow to some of our local families. Community support can help alleviate that pressure and could be the turning point for many. If you would like to help, please donate at www.gofundme.com/f/halfmoon-bay-families-
in-need or drop off a cheque to the school office. Any amount can help.
To have your say at the Bay, contact me before 5 p.m. Monday at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-885-5034.
