Free breakfast with Santa at Youth Ranch December 11

BRAZIL – Sheriffs and deputies are inviting K-6 students to a free “Breakfast With Santa” on Dec. 11 at the Indiana Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch. 

Organizers said the holiday event will be hosted at the Sheriffs’ Lodge & Conference Center, located on the ISYR property south of Brazil, 5325 N. State Road 59, from 9 a.m. until 12 noon.

A free breakfast sponsored by the ISYR Chaplain’s Fund will include pancakes, cereal, turkey sausage links, juices, and milk.

ISYR’s first-ever event is being organized by Clay County Sheriff Paul Harden, Greene County Sheriff Michael Hasler, former Marion County Sheriff John Layton, Owen County Sheriff Sam Hobbs, Parke County Sheriff Justin Cole, Putnam County Sheriff Scott Stockton, Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom, Vermillion County Sheriff Mike Phelps, Vigo County Sheriff John Plasse and others.

Students, parents, and grandparents from across Indiana are invited to attend. Tax-deductible ISYR Chaplain’s Fund donations provide needed clothing, toiletries, and food for young visitors to the 62-acre not-for-profit training retreat for future law enforcement officers, at-risk kids, young witnesses, and victims of crime. Sheriffs encourage parents and grandparents to make certain kids bring an appetite and a smartphone or camera for selfies with Santa.

No reservations are needed. All parking is free. Handicapped spots are available. Hand sanitizer and an electronic thermometer will be available. Face masks and social distancing are encouraged when possible. Guests will be asked to respect one another’s pandemic precautions. For more information about the “Breakfast with Santa” or to donate to the ISYR Chaplain’s Fund, call 317-460-4242, go online to Indiana Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch GoFundMe page or write to the ISYR Chaplain’s Fund, 5325 N.
