Santa Claus may be busy preparing for the big night later this month, but he made time to travel to Mount Sterling to have breakfast with the community. On Dec. 10, the jolly man from the North Pole visited Mount Sterling Masonic Lodge 269 to share pancakes, sausage, and good cheer with participating children and adults. The Masonic Lodge is hosting a second Breakfast with Santa on Dec. 17, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Darlene Burgett still has a smile to give despite flipping hundreds of pancakes for Breakfast with Santa.
Liam Trudeau, 7, is full of concentration as he makes a card for Santa. In addition to thanking the holiday icon for all he does, Trudeau also sent a request for a new Nintendo system and an Xbox.
Cooking crew member Bo Delancey makes sure the sausage is well done but not too well done. “We found out that things burn fast on this grill,” he quipped. Others in charge of the breakfast menu included Darlene Burgett, Jenny Delancey, John Huffman, Don Moffatt, Alex Myers, Bill Stephens, Melanie Stephens, and Justin Stump. The entire crew will be back at the lodge for another Breakfast with Santa from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 17.
