Pancake breakfast at Union Hall, March 25th

Once again, the folks at Union Hall are celebrating the coming of spring on Sunday, March 25th with a Pancake Breakfast. Food is being served from 8am until noon.

Diners will enjoy pancakes, sausages, beans or blueberries, with lashings of butter and Fortune Farms maple syrup, accompanied by fruit juice, Equator coffee or tea. The cost of this springtime treat is a modest $7, or $9 for the larger appetite. Kids 10 and under eat for $5.

Union Hall, located at the corner of Wolf Grove and Tatlock Roads, west of Almonte, has served the public for over 160 years. It is owned and maintained by the local community, with some financial assistance from the Municipality of Mississippi Mills. This year, visitors will be greeted by an outdoor mural, featuring the ladies of the Women’s Institute, courtesy of artist Laurel Cook.

This annual fundraiser is organised by the hall committee for the benefit of the public at large and all are welcome. Reservations are not necessary.

Union Hall is an 8 km drive west of Almonte through scenic maple bush along Wolf Grove Road. After breakfast, visitors can take a closer look at maple syrup production by visiting local operators, west of the hall.
