Lunch at Red Lobster with Santa and I Dec. 1, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Come and have lunch with local author, Karen Cotton, who will be on hand to answer questions about her new children’s chapter book, Carol and Santa. She will also answer any questions about publishing or writing that you may have. A book signing will follow the lunch. Her friend Santa will be on hand to listen to last minute Christmas wishes of the kids of Laramie County, and for photos that parents can feel free to take of their kids on their cell phones. Lunch includes everything on the Red Lobster menu that is paid separately. This is a non-ticketed event. It is free. Red Lobster manager Chris Ginete asks that patrons RSVP by Nov. 30 to get an official headcount, so he can set up the tables accordingly. People can also bring an unwrapped gift for Toys For Tots. There will be gift baskets raffled off at this event and proceeds of the raffle will also go to Toys for Tots. Gift baskets will include books of your favorite local and regional authors like Josh Walker and Steven Bates. As well as other local prizes.
