Holiday joy at Santa breakfast

By
From page A6 | January 25, 2013 |

The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge and Davis Rebekah Lodge recently completed our seventh annual Breakfast with Santa. And it was a great success. We heard nothing but compliments and saw nothing but smiles from the 350 children and families who enjoyed the morning. Folks in town really look forward to Breakfast with Santa — tickets always sell out in two weeks or less.

We have so many people to thank, but especially the world’s best Santa, our lodge’s own Doug Hatton. Thank you also to his wife and Santa manager Margee, and the eight young ladies who were the elves. We had some 50 volunteers from our lodges who worked in shifts from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. It takes many hands to put on this big show.

We also appreciate the merchants, like the Davis Food Co-op, Woodstock’s Pizza, Mezzeta Foods and Puroast Coffee, who donated all the food supplies. And thank you to the many donors who contributed funds to help our efforts — donors like Edward Jones Inc. and David Cougevan, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, the Wochok Group, the Law Offices of Raquel Silva, the Law Offices of Roberta Savage, Supervisor Don Saylor, retired Supervisor Helen Thomson, Davis Ace, Davis Waste Removal, First Northern Bank, Tandem Properties and Hanlees Nissan of Davis.

Thanks also to three dentists who contributed toothpaste and toothbrushes for the goodie bags — Dr. James Childress, Dr. Ellsworth Hew and Dr. Richard Mandelaris. We also thank The Avid Reader and Common Grounds, who have sold tickets for us for many years.

And a special big thank you to Debbie Davis and The Davis Enterprise, who keep the us all well informed about community events like Breakfast with Santa.

In addition to providing a great experience for the children who get to meet Santa at the breakfast, the proceeds from Breakfast with Santa are used to benefit foster children in our community, and young adults who have recently left the foster system.
