Breakfast will include scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage, juice and hot chocolate or coffee.

There will be free cookie decorating, story time and card making.


Cost is $10 for adults, $6 for children ages 4-15 and free for children under 4.

The Cookie Walk/Bake Sale will feature an assortment of cookies, buyers’ choice, for $9 a pound. Each auxiliary member makes seven dozen cookies, so there is always a good variety to choose from. Other holiday baked goods will be on sale.

Santa’s Breakfast proceeds are used to support auxiliary programs that benefit active-duty soldiers, veterans and wounded warriors.

All Cookie Walk/Bake Sale proceeds go toward the auxiliary scholarship fund, which will award two or three $1,000 scholarships to local students in the spring.

This is the first time the events have been held since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
