WINCHESTER — Santa continued his tour through local communities over the past couple of weekends — including a featured breakfast stop on behalf of Winchester Public School.

The school’s second annual breakfast with Santa event, Dec. 15 served as a fundraiser for a school trip to École de Neige in Quebec. The event filled the Winchester Lions Hall with children and families who enjoyed pancakes, face-painting, a silent auction and visits with St. Nick himself.
