Polar Express pancake breakfast to host Santa, serve up flapjacks in Sumter on Dec. 7

A civic group in Sumter is starting a new holiday-themed food event.

Alice Drive Middle School, 40 Miller Road, will transform into the North Pole on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 7:30 to 11 a.m. for the inaugural Polar Express Pancake Breakfast. The event will be hosted by and benefit the Rotary Club of Sumter-Palmetto, whose annual service projects include donating dictionaries to schools, gifting new sneakers to students in need and providing college-bound high school seniors with scholarships. This year, they also installed and stocked new Little Free Libraries in the city's HOPE Centers.

A ticket gives you entrance to the breakfast, which includes pancakes cooked up by club members and beverages. Santa will also make an appearance and be available for photos.

The event, which is in memory of "Papa Joe" Sublette, will also honor the club's charter members that morning.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children and can be purchased by any club member, at The Sumter Item, 36 W. Liberty St., during regular business hours or at the door.

Sponsorships are available starting at $100, which includes four adult and four children's tickets. For more information, contact Paul Robbins at probbins@thecitizensbank.cc.
