Littles are always a bit shy when they meet with Santa, but they never fail to come with a list of favourite toys for the big guy’s consideration. Santa will be on hand at the annual Lions Club Breakfast with Santa on Dec. 7. (Contributed photo)

Sooke Lions to host Breakfast with Santa

It’s a last-minute chance to get on the ‘nice list’

The Sooke Lions Club is getting in the Christmas spirit by flipping pancakes, grilling sausages, and whipping cream for bowls of succulent strawberries.

And, of course, there’ll be candy canes.

It’s the Lions club annual Breakfast with Santa and it’s all happening at the Sooke Legion on Dec. 7, between 9 and 11 a.m.

“We’ve been doing this event for about 12 years now and all the volunteers who come out to make it happen really look forward to the event,” Al Beddows, a Lions member, said.

“It’s that time of year when everyone gets in the Christmas spirit and watching the little ones come through the door, all excited to meet Santa, makes it all worthwhile.”

Breakfast with Santa attracts several hundred people and has outgrown the Sooke Community Hall, where the breakfast was held in the past.

An although the tasty breakfast is a draw, it’s really old St. Nick who brings the community through the door.

He’ll be on hand to greet the kiddies and take any last-minute requests for that special toy.

Word has it that Santa may even accept the odd request from adults, but he’ll be certain to check his naughty and nice lists before he grants any adult wishes.

There’s no charge for the Santa Breakfast, but the Lions accept donations for the Sooke Christmas Bureau.
