On Sunday, December 4th, The Manchester Masonic Lodge held its first annual Breakfast with Santa. The members of Manchester Lodge would like to thank everyone that dropped in for breakfast and the opportunity to hang with Santa. We enjoyed seeing all the young kids, dressed for the holidays and excited to see Santa. The menu consisted of Texas French Toast, Pancakes, Bacon and Sausage, Mixed Fruit, and beverages. Once again, our own Todd Crane pulled off an amazing meal for friends and family. This was a great way to kick off the Manchester Holiday Tree Lighting festivities. We are already planning next years Breakfast with Santa so make sure you mark your calendar for the first Sunday in December.
