BURGETTSTOWN - Dozens of children lined up to give their Christmas wish lists to Santa Claus Saturday at the Burgettstown Kids Center.

The center's annual Breakfast with Santa is held the first Saturday after Christmas each year, and the event includes a meal, a craft and a chance to visit with the jolly old elf. Each child received a coloring book and crayons from the kids center.

Local photographer Audrey Shaw has worked with the kids center for several years to provide no-cost portraits of the children with Santa.

SPECIAL?VISITOR — Santa Claus greeted several children shortly after arriving at the Burgettstown Kids Center Saturday for the center’s annual Breakfast with Santa.

Mary Ann and John Demczak portray Mrs. Claus and Santa Claus, and also provide gifts of their own for those children attending.

"We love having all the kids here," said Jim Reedy, kids center director. "We love everyone bringing their kids in to see Santa. Everyone has a good time and has fun with their friends. It's just a good, wholesome activity to bring the community together."
