I haven’t been to a Breakfast with Santa lately. But I got to visit with St. Nick this last Sunday. Our Cub Scout pack had it’s annual pancake breakfast fundraiser and since I am the Cubmaster I hung around for most of the morning.
This was a really fun event and a successful fundraiser. We had a couple of den leaders who really did a wonderful job organizing. And most of the families in the pack helped out in one way or another.
In addition to the pancake and sausage breakfast, we had carolers, a raffle, a table with Christmas themed coloring pages for the kids, and a bake sale. The Cub Scouts helped carry plates and cleaned up. And they went over to church after masses to invite parishioners to walk over to the gym and join us. They are good salesmen and saleswomen!
Near the end of the event, all of the kids – Cub Scouts or not – got up with the carolers and sung some songs. It was so sweet! And all of the little kids were excited to talk to Santa and have mom or dad take a picture.
So in the end this was a real fun-raiser which brought our parish community together. That’s my kind of fundraiser!
