The Wixom Association of Professional Firefighters will be putting smiles on the faces of kids who are counting the days until Christmas during its 33rd annual Breakfast with Santa event on Saturday, Dec. 8.
The program, slated to run from 8 to 11 a.m., is intended for children 10-years-old and younger. It will be held at the Wixom Community Center located at 49015 Pontiac Trail.
Wixom residents are encouraged to register by Friday, Dec. 7 due to the large number of attendees every year.
“We typically get well over 1,000 children,” said Wixom Fire Chief Jeff Roberts. “It’s one of the longest programs in the community with no taxpayer dollars (used for support).”
Breakfast is complementary for Wixom residents and will include pancakes and ham. Orange juice, milk, and coffee will also be served.
After breakfast, the children will be escorted to visit with Santa. Kids will also get to visit with Mrs. Claus and one of Santa’s elves.
Santa will hand out a gender specific gift to every little girl and boy courtesy of local businesses.
To register for the event call the Wixom Fire Department at 248-624-1055.
