Come enjoy a pancake breakfast with the jolly old elf himself! There will yummy food and fun crafts for the kids. Santa will be there with gifts for all the children and special time to whisper what they want for Christmas. Digital photos will be available or you can take your own. This festive holiday time is brought to you free by the Yachats Lions Club and Yachats Youth & Family Activities Program. We hope to see you there!


A Painless Way to Help

Especially around the holidays, it’s easy to make your money spend itself twice! How, you ask? Well, for example, we’d much prefer you spend your dollars locally, but if you need to shop via Amazon, you can nominate Yachats Youth and Family Activities Program as your charity and use AmazonSmile instead! Not only will you get your own purchases as usual, but behind the scenes a small portion will be zipping to us. 2 gifts in one! (You can do this at Fred Meyer and at Ray’s, too! Just go to their websites and nominate YYFAP as your charitable recipient.) And thank you!! ♥
