On Dec. 2 the Shaker Mill will host the annual Cowichan Lake United Way breakfast from 7 to 9 a.m.

The United Way breakfast has been happening in Lake Cowichan for roughly 20 years. Each year the event raises between $1,200 to $1,500, a percentage of which is donated to United Way and agencies that help people with learning abilities and other health issues.

Pat Foster, Edith Strocen, Helen Evans and Jayne Ingram are the United Way breakfast’s coordinators and are ready to host the worthwhile fund-raiser.

Foster noted that donations can also be made at the breakfast.

“It’s great. We look forward to it every year. It’s a really fun event,” said Foster.

The Shaker Mill prepares the breakfast with a choice of waffles, strawberries and cream or sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns and toast.

It is expected that anywhere from upwards of 100 people from the Cowichan Lake-area will attend.

Door prizes are donated from the organizing committee and are drawn throughout the morning. Your event ticket is your door prize ticket.

This popular breakfast is known for a quick turn around so you can make a donation and enjoy a hearty breakfast and still get an early start to your day.
