"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go;
There's a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well;
the sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, soon the bells will start;
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing;
right within your heart. Sure, it's Christmas once more!"
-- Michael Buble
Twinsburg -- The Rotary Club of Twinsburg hosted its annual "Breakfast with Santa" Dec. 3 at Brewster's Cafe, Bistro and Pub, 2681 Creekside Drive.
Families came from near and far to participate in the yearly yuletide event. Children, some eager, some shy and all excited, were awed by the magical scene. They shared their holiday wish lists with Santa as he asked if they had been naughty or nice.
Rumor has it that, without exception, every child qualified as "nice." Photos with St. Nick were snapped, certain to become family keepsakes, as young faces alighted with holiday joy.
Elvin creatures abounded in "Santa Land," and there were sprite servers courtesy of the local Interact Club, a Rotary-sponsored organization comprising youth 12 to 18 years old. There were elf helpers from the ranks of Rotary Club of Twinsburg members and their families, including President Philip Weiss aided by son, Peter,; and fundraising chairperson Kathy Turle-Waldon, in service with daughters, Samantha and Savannah.
Abby Fechter, program head; Guy Gentile, membership committee; Cindy Leonard, secretary-treasurer; and Andy Richner, foundation chair, ensured that guests both young and old were imbued with holiday cheer and given bountiful servings of food.
A non-profit service organization, the Rotary Club of Twinsburg has weekly luncheon meetings with timely speakers. On Jan. 25, the featured speaker will be Zachary Hoffman from the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. Hoffman will discuss how to become a wiser utilities consumer.
