WATERFORD — The third in a series of four summer breakfasts will take place from 7:30 to 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27 at the Wilkins Community House at the foot of Plummer Hill Road, next to the Waterford Congregational Church.  

In its 63rd year, the breakfast offers a menu of freshly baked muffins, scrambled eggs, pancakes, real Maine maple syrup, bacon, sausage, donuts, coffee and orange juice.  

The price for each breakfast is $8 for adults, $4 for child-sized portions, and free for children under five years of age.  The proceeds from the breakfasts contribute to the maintenance of the Wilkins Community House.

The Wilkins House Basement Yard Sale is also held from 7:30 to 11 a.m. New items appear at each of the sales.  This summer’s final breakfast will be on Wednesday, Aug. 10.

The refurbished kitchen stove stopped working several times during the July 4 breakfast; be assured it is back in working order and a super breakfast will be had by all without the waits of the 4th of July breakfast. So join in – they all look forward to welcoming you.
