The holiday breakfast will consist of muffins and fruit, and there will also be arts and crafts available, with photo oppurtunities with Santa Claus, as well. 

“The hope for Breakfast with Santa is for it to be an annual event that will give our community a place to have breakfast, meet Santa Claus and enjoy making some crafts,” said Polk County YMCA board member and Breakfast with Santa organizer Michael Meissner. “The YMCA is all about bringing together and enhancing the quality of life of its community, and this is an extension of that in our own area.”

Visitors can have photos taken with Santa for $5, and donations are accepted. All funds raised will go towards YMCA scholarships.
