Happy Thought Coffee is inviting area children to attend a free event at their coffee shop. This event, Santa’s Brunch, will provide children with the opportunity to have a fun “kids’ brunch” along with other fun activities such as making an ornament to take home, cookie decorating, as well as a visit and photo op with Santa Claus. Santa’s Brunch will be held on Dec. 16 at the coffee shop, located at 953 N. Second St. in Chillicothe, and seating will begin at 11 a.m., followed by noon and 1 p.m. if needed. Donations made toward the 10th Annual Community Thanksgiving provided funding for this event and additional donations are still being accepted. Santa’s Brunch is open to all children but reservations are necessary because restaurant seating is limited to 50 people per seating.  Those wishing to attend will need to be scheduled so that all interested families can attend. If a breakfast with Santa was not in the family budget this year or your holiday schedule didn’t allow you to attend others, this is your opportunity! Please contact Happy Thought Coffee at 274-6623 to register for the event.
