Pictures and Pancakes with Santa at the Hamlet Fire Department

Santa will drop in for breakfast Saturday morning to have his photo taken with area children. The event will be 8:30-10:30 a.m., at the Hamlet Fire Department, behind 201 Main St., Hamlet. (Look for the fire trucks.) Cost is $5 per child, which will cover a pancake breakfast and photo with Santa. Adults also may eat for $5 each — but, sorry, no Santa photo. The Fire Department and Richmond Service League are offering the breakfast to raise money for Toys for Tots, which provides gifts for underserved children during the holidays.
