Start your day with an “all you can eat” pancake and whole hog smoked sausage breakfast in Strasburg this weekend at the 4th annual Santa Brigade Breakfast & Market to be held at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 6-11 a.m.
The event, hosted by Strasburg Community Action Network (SCAN), will also include a Christmas market and free coat giveaway from 7 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Local artisans will help you jump start your Christmas shopping with gifts of jewelry, stepping stones, embroidery, ornaments, crafts, bows, soaps, honey, baked goods, noodles, and more. Consultants for Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, Fuller Brush, Thirty-One and more will feature their holiday specials.
A limited number of 2011 Strasburg hand-painted gnome ornaments will be available for purchase. Also available will be the 2012 Strasburg Calendar featuring over 30 pictures of veterans – both past and present. $2 of the proceeds from each calendar sold will be donated to the Strasburg American Legion Post #289.
The Orphan Grain Train of St. Paul’s is sponsoring a free coat give-away now through the breakfast. Anyone in the community in need of a warm coat is invited to take part. Coats of all sizes are hung in the hallway of St. Paul’s School which is open during day-light hours.
Don't forget to register for the 50/50 drawing. A free will donation will be taken for the breakfast. For more information call Lisa at 217-644-3123, visit the Strasburg website at www.strasburgil.com, or Facebook “I know where Strasburg, Illinois is!”
