WAYNESBURG – More than 80 local children attended the Greene County Department of Recreation’s “Breakfast with Santa” from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the Greene County Fairgrounds.
Children in attendance had the opportunity to sit with Santa Claus, discuss their Christmas lists with him and have their pictures taken. Each child also received a special treat and Santa’s helper hat, as well as a bag of reindeer food to help guide Santa’s sleigh team on Christmas Eve.
Other activities included ornament-making and a coloring contest. Contest winners received Walmart gift cards. The breakfast was prepared and served by Chef Dan Wagner, culinary arts instructor at the Greene County Career & Technology Center.
The Department of Recreation would like to thank Santa and Mrs. Claus, everyone who attended, and all volunteers and sponsors, including the Greene County commissioners, Baily Insurance Agency Inc., Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, Community Bank, Milliken & Throckmorton Funeral Home Inc. and Rhodes & Hammers Printing Inc.
