United Way Breakfast ready to shake awake

The Cowichan Lake United Way Breakfast is back for another year this Friday, Dec. 4. at the Shaker Mill.

The Cowichan Lake United Way Breakfast is back for another year this Friday, Dec. 4. at the Shaker Mill.

“We’ve done it for 20-some years now,” said Pat Foster, one of the organizers.

“We usually serve between 90 and 100 breakfasts. The Shaker Mill is great. They’re really good at supporting us.”

For the $10 entry, folks can have waffles with strawberries and cream or the more traditional sausages, eggs, hash browns and toast.

Of course additional donations to the cause are also welcome.

Delegates from the Duncan United Way speak for a few minutes and then breakfast is served between 7 and 9 a.m.

“Community Services also speak and the Lady of the Lake girls come,” Foster said. “It’s kind of fun.”

The event generally draws anywhere between $1,500 and $2,000, Foster added, noting the Lake Cowichan United Way committee asks the parent group to keep those funds in the community.

“We designate the funds to community services in Lake Cowichan,” she confirmed.

Tickets are available at the Shaker Mill Restaurant, at Community Services or by giving Foster a call at 250-749-3730. They can also be purchased at the door.
