Breakfast with Santa at the Elizabeth F. Cheney Mansion in Oak Park.
Designed by the architect Charles E. White, Jr. in the style of a gracious old English Country home, it is located in the historic district of Oak Park. This is a good chance to see how the “upper crust” lived in past times and experienced Christmas. The event included live music, as well an OPSME staffed model train layout. Of course there was breakfast, lunch o rafternoon tea with Santa in very elegant surroundings. Guests brough children's toys and gifts which overflowed the giant chest set out to receive them. These will go to a local charity.
