One event Santa Claus never misses is the North Oyster and Area Historical Society Christmas Pancake Breakfast.

This year’s event happens at the Cedar Community Hall, one of Santa’s favourite pre-Christmas hangouts because he always finds fun stuff for the whole family when he arrives.

Entertainment includes the Shriners of B.C. Mount Arrowsmith Clown Unit, the Pocket Lady, the Big Wheel of Surprise, creative crafts table, cookie decorating, temporary tattoos, face and nail painting, door prizes for kids under 12, a Christmas raffle and photos with Santa by News Bulletin photographer Chris Bush.

It all happens Saturday (Nov. 26), 9 a.m. to noon. Breakfast is $5 for adults and $2 for kids.

Help share the Christmas spirit by bringing a non-perishable food item for the food hamper or items for babies, such as diapers, bottles, bedding, sleepers or receiving blankets, which will be given to local charities.

For more information, please call Irene at 250-245-2559 or Sue at 250-245-3358.
