Wake up and smell the coffee– and the cakes. Eating them is even better!
 
The Freshwater Grange Friends and Volunteers are hosting their fresh hot pancakes and real scrambled egg breakfast– with all the fixin’s– this Superbowl Sunday.
 
There’s breakfast, conversation and all the fine local flavor served up fresh. We welcome, delight, and would love to have you come enjoy it with us in the beautiful Freshwater Valley.  Every time it happens more and more of you show up and our ‘pancake family’ grows bigger.  Thank you!
 
The menu features delicious buttermilk and whole grain pancakes, plus ham, sausage, scrambled eggs, orange juice, tea, and Wanda’s bottomless French Roast coffee.  Hungry? Come back for more.  It’s all included.
 
James cracks all the fresh eggs early in the morning and our pixie pancake makers– Sue and Shirley– are mixing up the fresh batter to the right proportions for the griddle. Patrick and Laura, the dynamic duo, are stirring the eggs and fixing up the sausage and ham.  Wanda and Mary will be sure your coffee is hot and brewed fresh for your cup.  Tamara and Jen and Clay and Tissa will be there helping, too.
 
The aroma of fresh pancakes and sausage– just like you remember at home during the holidays– is happening all morning. 
 
It all comes together like a magical surprise with everyone’s fine help.  Well, most of the time it does anyway.
 
What’s great is the rock bottom price:
$5 for adults, and  only $3 for the kids.
 
The price hasn’t been raised in eight years.  Heck, for that kind of convenient deal you can bring the whole family.  Why not?
 
The money goes to the good cause of fun-raising:  fixing up and restoring the old Freshwater Grange.  So far you’ve helped put on a new roof, repair the drainage and walkway, install a new heater, and help spiff up the historical place.  It is over a 100 years old after all, and every little bit helps. It needs our community help and care. And you help us put the word fun back into funky!
 
We hope to see you there– and fill your plate with some happy, happy, happy down-home Wrangletown lumberjack cooking just before the big 3:30 game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos.
 
When: First Sunday of every month, 8-11 a.m.
Phone: 442-7107
Price: $5 adults; $3 kids
 
The Place: Freshwater Grange, 49 Grange Road
 
…Just follow the smiley balloons and signs: up Freshwater Road, about 2.2 miles east of 3 Corners market and then turn right past the Garfield Little Red Schoolhouse onto Grange Road.
 
You can’t miss it. If you do happen to miss it, just ask anyone standing nearby. They’re all friendly, they’re all on Aloha Time and they all have no worries.
 
You may be the highlight of their otherwise slow and bucolic day.
