  1. What's new in this club
  2. Our next local Santa breakfast is confirmed! Come join us at the Bee and Biscuit in Pungo, VA (rural Virginia Beach) at 7AM on September 29th, 2018! We'll have a blast at our last breakfast before the Santa Season kicks off. HO HO HO. We'll have tables waiting for us and if you have any questions, I'll try to answer them. Please mark your calendars, September 29th. The Bee and Biscuit has wonderful food but its extremely packed on weekends. So, please arrive a little before 7AM to get seated right when they open. Parking is available across the street. Since space will be an issue for a large turnout, please let me know if you're plannning to come. The restaurant would like a head count before-hand, er, I mean a Santa count. HO HO HO! Their website is https://www.beebiscuit.com/and all area Santas and Mrs. Clauses are invited. My thanks to Karen Johnson at the Bee and Biscuit for helping get this one confirmed. As of September 21st, 12 Santas and Mrs. Claus's have said they will join us! We meet informally about four times a year for Santa breakfasts in northeast North Carolina and southeast Virginia!

  5. Ol Santa

    Saturday, October 3, 2015 Luncheon

    Wish I could be there but... ...Ol' Santa here. I just returned from the "Meat Pie Festival" in Natchitoches, LA. and have gotten back on the "Half Fast Diet" that has worked so successfully for me. I'm just a little bit afraid my big ol' Santa belt that's 4" wide and 3/16" thick wouldn't stand up to that kind of punishment! Ol' Santa

    VA Santa Luncheon Feb 28, 2015

    We will be there, and for the first time I will have bottles of the essential oil blend I have developed over the years. So many have asked me for it over the years, that I decided to blend a big batch and offer it. As I said, it is a blend of essential oils. I went to the oils because the sick and dying children we visit do not seem to have any adverse reaction to it, that colognes can sometime have. Everyone we visit says "You both even smell like Christmas!" Mine a blend of frankincense, myrrh, cinnamon, some pine and some other scents as well. I intend upon having my Mrs. Claus' scent also. It is rose-based. In Midlothian, I will have them for $5 per. If you want it via the mails, it will be $8 per. I will consolidate postage if you order more than 1.
