Cumberland Community Schools Society Santa’s Breakfast Sunday, Dec. 1

To celebrate the holiday season, the Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS) invites community members of all ages to Santa’s Breakfast.

This beloved event features a delicious pancake meal, arts and crafts activities, and the ever-popular wreath-making station. Shop for unique gifts for yourself and your loved ones at the silent auction.

And don’t forget to leave time for a visit with Santa.

This year marks the 12th anniversary of Santa’s Breakfast, a fundraiser for the Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS). Proceeds from this event support CCSS’s registered charity efforts including free after-school programming, a healthy lunch program, drop-in youth centre and continuing education for adults.

“Over the past five years our school has seen a 33 per cent increase in enrolment, resulting in increased demand for our programs,” said Sue Loveless, CCSS executive director. “The success of this event will help to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our growing community.”

CCSS thanks generous sponsors Cumberland Dental Centre, Ginger Goodwin Medical Clinic, Cloutier Matthews Chartered Professional Accountants and Ronni Lister Personal Real Estate Corporation, along with the many other local businesses who are supporting the event.

Santa’s Breakfast takes place Sunday, Dec. 1, 8:30-11:30 a.m. at Cumberland Recreation, 2665 Dunsmuir Ave. Entry is by donation.
