Pancakes with the Easter Bunny!
On Saturday,April 1st, the Easter Bunny will host the 28th Annual SCA Pancake Breakfast! The best breakfast in town will be served in the cafeteria of the Silvermine School on Perry Avenue. Flapjacks start flipping at 8 a.m. and the syrup keeps flowing until 11 a.m. Admission is $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children.
The Pancake Breakfast is a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones, catch up on the neighborhood news, or just escape the winter blahs! There will be games and face painting for the kids, too! So, stop in for a stack of cakes and stay for a cup of coffee. Bring the gang and don’t forget to stay for the Special Membership Drawing!

This celebration is one of the most popular events on our community calendar and is for Silvermine Community Members only. In order to participate, you must be a current member for 2016 or 2017 (Join now).
We have received official word from the North Pole, and are happy to report that once again, Santa will arrive promptly at 3:30 p.m! As usual, there will be lots of hot chocolate for everyone in the Silvermine Arts Center parking lot while season’s greetings are exchanged by all who attend.
For those who are new to the community, this is the way things work: On December 24th, between 10:00 and 2:00 p.m., sneak away to 297 Silvermine Ave – an antique red home near the Silvermine Tavern. Note that drop-off is no longer at the Tavern!!
At the Brown’s home, you’ll find Santa’s elves awaiting the arrival of your child’s gift. Label the gift with your child’s name in large block letters and tie multiple gifts together. Occasionally, Santa has been known to forget his spectacles and he doesn’t want any child to worry about being forgotten.
Later in the afternoon, at approximately 3:40 p.m., you’ll hear the jolly sound of Santa ringing bells as he rounds the corner into the Silvermine Arts Center parking lot. For the next hour or so, the air will be filled with the merry sound of childrens’ excited voices as gifts are opened and admired. And yes, Santa sent a message again this year, saying the elves will be handing out candy canes to all those youngsters waiting to hear their names called!
Don’t miss this very special annual tradition. Plan to join the festivities on Wednesday, December 24th at 3:30 p.m. in the Silvermine Arts Center parking lot. Be sure to dress for the weather. In years past, Silvermine has resembled the North Pole!
