Breakfast with Santa – December 17 at Sandburg H.S.

Lunch with Santa last week with the Frankfort Park District wasn’t enough to fill your youngsters, was it. That’s fine, because they’ll surely get their fill at Sandburg High School when they eat breakfast with Santa! Jolly old Saint Nicholas knows just how important the first meal of the day is, and he’s more than willing to take some time out of his busy holiday schedule to spread some cheer and to pass the pancakes! See Page 4 for more information.
Where: Sandburg High School, 13300 S. LaGrange Road, Orland Park.
When: 9 a.m.-Noon, Saturday, Dec. 17.
