On Sat., Dec. 14, the Warwick Valley Knights of Columbus held their 8th Annual Breakfast with Santa at St. Stephen-St. Edward School Gym in Warwick. Over 170 children along with their families enjoyed a breakfast that included waffles, sausage, and potatoes.
As they have in past years, the Shoprite of Warwick donated the food for the event. Volunteers from the Knights, family members, the Women’s Sodality, and the youth of the parish all helped to make the breakfast a tremendous success. The toys for the breakfast were donated by the Catholic Institute of the Food Industry and ESM Ferolie and their employees.
Chris Rosado from Allen Christopher Professional Photography Software once again donated his time and service to provide a free photo with Santa for each child.
Co-Chairs of the Breakfast, Bob Long and Ernie Nitschke, would like to give special thanks to St. Stephen Pastor Fr. Jack Arlotta; St. Stephen-St. Edward School Principal Bethany Negersmith; School Secretary Jill Lewis; and Custodian Rich Held for their support and help to make the event so special. The Knights also would like to thank the generosity of the Warwick community for their donations to the annual Christmas for Kids Toy Drive.
