To the Editor:

Thank you to everyone who attended Pancakes with Santa. The event, which benefits Kent Community Nursery School, was a big success.

Pancakes with Santa celebrated its 17th anniversary this year and has become synonymous with Christmas in Kent.

Our guests enjoyed a festive atmosphere with a delicious breakfast, fun crafts for the children and, of course, time with Santa Claus.

As the children sat on Santa's lap discussing their Christmas wishes and parents snapped those memorable pictures, it was nice to look around and see everyone enjoying the holiday season.

Special thanks to Kent Wine and Spirit, Kent Coffee and Chocolate, Estelle Trabucco, Davis IGA, the Gawel Family, JP. Giffords, Mountain Falls Fitness, the Abbott Family, Kent School, Annie Bananie Ice Cream, Katy Armstrong and family, Beardsley Gardens, the Horgan Family, St. Andrew's Episcopal Church and, of course, KCNS parents, teachers and board members.

From all of us at Kent Community Nursery School, we thank you for your ongoing support.
