It started in 1994, and nearly 20 years later it has become one of Lake Cowichan’s pre-season traditions


The Cowichan Lake United Way breakfast will take place in the Shaker Mill restaurant on Friday, Dec. 7 from 7- 9 a.m.

Coordinator Patricia Foster is happy to be coordinating the breakfast again this year.


“We raise funds for the agencies that deliver programs in the Cowichan Lake area,” Foster said about the fundraiser. “One of those programs is Meals on Wheels that are delivered out of Community Services.”

Foster explained that the restaurant supplies the breakfast, and that all of the proceeds go to the United Way.


Attending the breakfast is a good way to meet up with other members of the community and have a chat over coffee, with the added bonus of contributing to a good cause.

Tickets are $10 per person and can be obtained at the Shaker Mill Restaurant, the Lake Cowichan Community Services, or at the door.
