Santa breakfast turns into drive-thru
While children won’t be able to enjoy breakfast and games when visiting Santa this year, they will still be able to see the jolly old elf in Chenoa.
The Chenoa Women’s Club is planning a drive-thru event this Saturday, Dec. 12 from 9-11 a.m. under the outside awning at the Methodist Church.
“We can’t have the Breakfast with Santa but we are going to have visits at the Methodist Church,” explained Susie Boian, club member. “It will be all decorated and Santa will be sitting right out front.”
Parents can drive their cars through the area and roll down the windows so kids can tell Santa want they want for Christmas, although they can’t leave their vehicles. Children will also receive a treat bag and get a photo taken if they wish.
“We were sad we couldn’t have the breakfast but this way, they’ll get to see him,” added Boian.
Chenoa’s Breakfast with Santa tradition goes back many years and typically takes place at the school with donuts, games and crafts. Boian noted the club has always done this for the holiday season and did not want to break the tradition this year.
The Chenoa Women’s Club is a great group with a storied history in the community, decorating the downtown area, helping with the library and organizing garage sales. They also do a Thanksgiving food basket each year.
Boian is on the Breakfast with Santa organizing committee for the Chenoa Women’s Club.
