Bedford: ‘Rotary Breakfast With Santa’ Date Is Set
“Rotary Breakfast with Santa” will be held on Sunday, December 13 at Bedford High School. This year will mark the 29th time the Rotary Club of Bedford has sponsored this event, which has become a favorite family tradition in town. Children will have an opportunity to visit with Santa, to enjoy holiday coloring, crafts, and balloon making, and everyone will have the opportunity to enjoy a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, sausage and more!

“We are actively soliciting sponsorships from businesses who support Rotary’s mission and may benefit from connecting with Bedford families,” says Mark Cieplinski, who is coordinating our club’s sponsorship efforts. The club believes that local businesses that provide kid-centered services or products will particularly benefit from exposure to the 700 people expected to attend. Support options range from advertisement in the coloring book that will go home with each child to support of one of the in-person activity tables that are popular attractions at the event.
“100 percent of the proceeds from this event go to support Rotary’s local and international service projects,” says Diana Jarvis, president of our club. “This year we are highlighting our efforts to support the Bedford Community Table and Food Pantry, Bicycle Helmet Distribution and Safety Day, and the club’s ‘Meals for Kids’ meal-packaging event.”

More than 110 volunteers reached the goal to package 20,000 meals in less than four hours. A great time was had by all. The meal-assembly process combined rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix. The meals included 21 essential vitamins and minerals sealed in small packages containing six servings. Meal packages are shipped around the world to support feeding programs and crisis relief. The packaged food stores easily, transports quickly and has a shelf life of two years.
Established in 1998, Stop Hunger Now coordinates the distribution of food and their life-saving aid to crisis-burdened areas around the world. For more information, click here.
