Santa To Visit Dorchester On Morning Of Dec. 10
Hey, kids. The big guy -- Santa Claus -- is coming to town.
Dorchester's "Morning with Santa" is set for Saturday, December 10, 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. at the Dorchester Community Building.
There is no charge for this special event. And it's sponsored by the Dorchester Volunteer Fire Department.
In years gone by -- when the event was sponsored by DACA, before a lawsuit brought an end to the organization -- "Morning With Santa" featured activities organized by Dorchester's FBLA students, such as crafts, decorating of sugar cookies, making bead bracelets and bookmarks, making picture frames and more. Also, the Dorchester Legion was known to serve a breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and toast.
A decade ago, more than 65 area children attended this event. Will 2016 break that record?
We hear extra special activities are planned this year, but we've promised Santa we would not disclose the details.
