The City of Linden and Mayor Derek Armstead thank Uptown Linden, and the Mayor’s Youth Commission for hosting more than 250 kids along with parents at the 2ND Annual Holiday Breakfast with Santa held Saturday, December 16, 2017, at Applebee’s, 671 W. Edgar Rd, Linden, NJ. Thank you also to Linden council members, Michele Yamakaitis (8th Ward), Barry Javick (2nd Ward) and Lisa Ormon (1st Ward) for their participation and support.
At the holiday event, each kid plus some parents took photos with Santa; had sausage, eggs, pancakes and a drink for breakfast; and the children were given a toy to take home for the holiday. The holiday season can be an emotional and financial time for many families, so Mayor Armstead, Uptown Linden (business community), and the Mayor’s Youth Commission team to brighten the holiday season in making sure a child got a visit from Santa; had breakfast; took home a keepsake Santa photo and received a gift.
Mayor Armstead said, “Every year, this event gets bigger and we hope to see all of you again next year.”
