Breakfast with Santa Fights Hunger

Over 300 Sparks, Brownies, Beavers and Cubs (with assorted leaders, parents and siblings) enjoyed food, fun and a visit from Santa at the Coquitlam Optimist Club's annual Pancake Breakfast.  Admission was by donation of a non-perishable food item.  Thanks to the generosity of the participants, many of whom brought bags of edibles, the event netted 554 lbs. of food for the Share Food Bank.  The youngsters left with full tummies, candy canes, balloon art and a sense of having helped the less fortunate.
