ROTARIANS TO HOST BREAKFAST WITH SANTA ON DECEMBER 10TH
November 21, 2016
The holiday season has just gotten a bit brighter for families in Miami County, thanks to the staff at Lincoln Community Center and Troy Rotarians. They have invited Santa Claus to come to breakfast on Saturday, December 10th, and he said he will be there with bells on. He wants to invite families to join him for the 5th annual breakfast of all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, milk, juice and coffee at Lincoln Community Center, 110 Ash Street in Troy, between 8:30-11 a.m. that day. The breakfast will be free-of-charge to those who make reservations and pick up their tickets by Thursday, December 8th.
Rotarian Melissa Kleptz has been the program leader since its inception. “This event continues to be a highlight for the club each year,” she shared. “What makes it even more special is this will be the first time we will host the breakfast at Lincoln Community Center and can offer the meal for free,” Kleptz added. She noted that, thanks to the generosity of sponsors and successful fundraisers throughout the year, the club will underwrite the entire cost of the breakfast.
Mark your calendars now to join in on the fun. Reservations are required, and tickets will be distributed to those who request seats. Please call the center at 937.335.2715 by Thursday, December 8th to make sure your name is on the list. Tickets can be picked up at the center. Be sure to come hungry. All the kids will have a chance to visit with Santa and get a framed 4x6” picture with the Jolly Old Elf himself.
Troy Rotarians and the Troy Rotary Foundation support several community projects annually. During the 2015-16 Rotary year, over $23,000 in scholarships and community aid was distributed from the fund, including support for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program, Rotary's annual Shoe Project, academic and community service scholarships, and sponsorships to summer camps at Brukner Nature Center and WACO Air Museum. The Troy Rotary Club is a member-involved, goal-oriented service club focused on socio/economic issues that have an impact both locally and internationally.
