Wednesday Morning Breakfast

A gallant group of 15 church members get up early on Wednesday mornings to cook breakfast for the Harrison High School students, and 2 others have the groceries waiting for us. And the most gallant of all is Elbert who gets up at who-knows-when to have the doors open and coffee perking. (Everyone give Elbert a pat on the back; he deserves it.)

During the 2018 fall semester, an average of 108 students ate a breakfast of milk, juice, cereal, fruit, breakfast bars, and rotating hot items consisting of biscuits and gravy, pancakes and sausage, or breakfast burritos, and once a month they had donuts. Donations of breakfast bars are always appreciated. We serve Quaker Chewy Granola Bars, but any kind will be devoured. A basket for donations is located in the hall just south of the office.

The students often offer their appreciation for our service. In fact, one student who graduated last year still comes quite often before 6:00 to sit, eat, and just talk with some of us old geezers (referring to the guys, not the ladies). Rather AMAZING! Most students don’t come until the buses arrive around 7:00. But all have fun.
