The Y’s Men’s Club of Broken Hill has once again been contracted by the North Pole to be Santa’s conduit in the Silver City for the festive season. Santa and his elves’ trusted advisors, the Y’s Men, have been fulfilling this role for over 40 years.
As per tradition, the festive season kicks off this Saturday for the children of Broken Hill with the wildly popular Breakfast with Santa at the YMCA from 8:30 am. “The big fella in the red suit has confirmed he will be there. We will also have a jumping castle and, fingers crossed, face painting, along with some nutritious Coco Pops for breakfast,” Santa and Santa Letter coordinator Simeon Kloczko told the Barrier Truth.
Alongside the Breakfast with Santa, The Y’s Men have also been tasked by the North Pole with handling all Santa correspondence in Broken Hill. Mr. Kloczko told the Truth the sooner the kids get their letters in, the better, with shipping times to the North Pole taking longer than usual throughout November and December. “To help make sure all the kiddies get their letters to Santa, and to give him enough time to write back, we’d like to ask the children and their parents to get their letters in as soon as possible,” Mr. Kloczko told the Barrier Truth.
Children can drop their letters to Santa off at various special post boxes around the city, including at the South Post Office, both YMCA facilities, Busy Kids Childcare Centre, along with many others.
To get involved in this weekend’s Breakfast with Santa event, it will only cost you a gold coin donation, which can be made either on the day or at the YMCA on Blende Street or the Aquatic Centre.
