LA GRANGE — More than 200 children and parents were expected for a breakfast with Santa Saturday at the Meadowbrook Manor retirement home in La Grange.
The West Suburban Clown Club entertained visitors and residents by twisting balloons to make animals. The clowns also performed tricks and did face-painting.
“It’s an event everyone is drawn to, and it’s our way of giving back to the community, too,” said Beverley Domaleczny, director of admissions. “It’s a really nice spread for breakfast, and the clowns are great.”
