North Salem Lions Ask Santa to Breakfast

NORTH SALEM, N.Y.-For the last four years, the North Salem Lions have hosted its “Pancake Breakfast With Santa,” giving the kids of North Salem (and the Lions Club members, admittedly) a tradition to enjoy each year. While pancakes might not be a mainstay holiday item on breakfast tables anytime soon, it’s now a must-have for the Lions, Santa and their pancake-loving cohorts.

It began as a way for kids to spend some quality time with Santa, Bob Loeb, Lions Club president said. The photos taken with Santa, courtesy of the Lions, are free to the public along with the pancakes.

“It’s fun for the kids,” he explained. “They can spend time with Santa rather than be ushered through a line at the mall.”

This year’s event was held Dec. 2 at the Lions Club’s community center.

The Books That Got Me Through the Storm

And while I am still out of power, I consider myself and my family to be fortunate; just a few houses from mine, and all over Westchester and Putnam counties, there are trees and wires down on roads, on cars, on homes and businesses. Indeed, we ...

Thrifting From the Couch

Now that I am confident that we have turned the corner on winter and the warm weather is here to stay, it is time to commit to that timeless ritual: change of season, change your closet. I actually like it, that chance to get reacquainted with my favorites and to question once again why some things were actually purchased in the first place. I am totally guilty of falling into that trap of loving ...
