OSCA Breakfast with Santa 2013

DSC02297-SNOWOn December 15th OSCA hosted our second annual ‘Breakfast with Santa’. This was a simple event with no advertising, outside promotion or sales of items, and no entrance fee asked. It is our way to open our doors and invite the community to gather together, enjoy a pancake breakfast, and a short visit from Santa. It’s also a way for us to support our local Ottawa Food Bank. This year we also asked for donations for our neighbours Empathy House.
