SCC Holiday Breakfast and Walk, Tomorrow, December 1
By Diane M. Loeffler
December 1, Community Association and Kings Point members and their guests are invited to the annual Holiday Breakfast. Afterwards, enjoy shopping at our club rooms on the Holiday Walk.
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.
This will be the fourth breakfast they have worked. Floyd Curvin says, “We want the Sullivans to teach us the process now in case we want to be chairs in the future.”
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.”
Volunteers are the reason it is possible to have low-cost community breakfasts twice a year. Most of these helpers work one 2-hour shift. Some cook, some serve food or beverages, some set up or clear tables, and some help with clean-up. 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.
Proceeds from the breakfasts help fund other breakfasts and cover the costs of equipment and supplies. These funds also help with other events such as the July 4 pool party and the golf cart parade.
What You Will Find on the Holiday Walk
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.
