Santa’s Elves Hard at Work All Over Sun City Center
Don’t Miss the Holiday Breakfast and Walk December 1
By Diane M. Loeffler
Mark your calendar for Saturday, December 1. Community Association and Kings Point members and their guests are invited to the annual Holiday Breakfast. Afterwards, you can shop at the club rooms.
The breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. in the Florida Room and service continues until 11:30 a.m. with the busiest time being 8:30 until 10. For only $5 you can eat freshly cooked sausage, pancakes and toast accompanied by coffee and orange juice. Your friends and neighbors will be cooking and serving this great breakfast. Thanks to all the volunteers, the price has remained at $5 for a long time. Also, you have the option of buying a ticket or tickets for the 50 /50 drawing. Wouldn’t it be nice to win a little extra spending money this time of year?
This years’ co-chairs are Bob and Pat Sullivan and Floyd and Brenda Curvin. The Sullivans helped chair the event last year, and the Curvins have been involved with the community’s breakfasts in the past. The Curvins have lived in Sun City Center a year and a half. They immediately became involved with helping with the Fourth of July and Holiday breakfasts.
Floyd Curvin says, “Many volunteers continue to help year after year because they have such a good time. They will say, ‘I would like to work the same shift and job because the group I was with was so much fun.’”
Bob Sullivan says, “The camaraderie is fantastic. One hundred and seventy plus people are all working together. It is such a cool feeling while we are doing it.”
The holiday breakfast is a great opportunity to get to know people and to contribute to the community without a large time commitment. If this sounds like something you would like to do, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the breakfast, head out to the club rooms. You will find all kinds of great things: knitted and woven scarves and clothing, gorgeous jewelry, handcrafted wood items, decorations, pottery, ceramics, art work and other gift possibilities. The prices will be reasonable and usually a portion of the price goes to a charitable cause.
