Festivities take a Village

Port Alice hosts annual Breakfast with Santa at the Community Centre.

PORT ALICE—Family, friends, feasting — and a visit from Santa Clause, of course — highlighted the weekend at the Community Centre, which hosted Christmas celebrants of all ages in a pair of popular events.

The weekend kicked off Friday evening with the annual Senior Pot Luck dinner.

The Village sponsored the dinner with turkey, ham and roast beef, while participants provided a wide range of salads, side dishes and desserts.

The next morning it was the kids’ turn to feast, in the annual Breakfast with Santa.

Dressed in their holiday finery, the town’s youngsters then joined Santa in the gymnasium for photos and had a chance to create ornaments and bead jewelry at craft tables.

They then sat down — or jumped up — for an interactive show of magic, juggling and jokes by magician Greg Ladret.
