WATERFORD — Come to the beautiful village of Waterford for the third in a series of four summer breakfasts on Wednesday, August 3 from 7:30 to 10 a.m.
Held at the Wilkins Community House at the foot of Plummer Hill Road next to the church, the Waterford summer breakfast tradition is in its 58th year, but the food is fresh, cooked right on site, and delicious -scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, freshly made muffins, donuts, orange juice and coffee. The price is right, too - $7 for adults, $4 for children ages five to 10, and free for children under five. The final of the four breakfasts will be held on Wednesday, August 17.
As usual, there will be an indoor yard sale in the Wilkins Community House basement from 7 to 11 a.m. on the day of the breakfast. Come check out new items and take advantage of bargains to enhance your child’s dorm room or apartment or your own summer camp. The prices are right here too.
All proceeds from the breakfasts and the yard sales go to the building’s Maintenance and Improvement Fund.
