Breakfast with Santa

Breakfast with Santa

Santa is coming to Middletown Springs.

Santa will parade atop a fire truck from South Street to the firehouse in Middletown Springs at 9:30 a.m.

Children and their families will enjoy a pancake breakfast with Santa. Children will have the opportunity to sit with Santa and tell him what is on their lists this year for Christmas. Children will receive a gift bag and reindeer food to put out Christmas Eve courtesy of the fire department.

Parents have the opportunity to sign their children up to receive a letter in the mail from Santa. The letter is personalized, and it will thank each child for visiting Santa and having breakfast with the big guy himself!

MSVFD will be teaming up with Shriners Hospitals for Children. During the breakfast, the members of the fire department will be accepting unwrapped toys for children of all ages. The members of MSVFD will stuff their fire truck as full as they can and deliver all the gifts to the Shriners Hospital in Massachusetts. They will be making the trip just in time for the holidays!

The MSVFD is hoping to bring a smile to children in our local communities and also to other children that may not be as fortunate to be home for the holidays. This is our chance to give back to the children. That is what the spirit of Christmas is all about!

If you would like to donate an unwrapped, new toy or have questions, please contact Karen Castle at chiefcastlesgirl@aol.com or call 802-235-2160. This event is fun for all ages! Bring your Christmas lists and your cameras!

Breakfast is $6.00 per person. Kids 6 and under are FREE!!!
