|Springtime on the mesa|
Flowers everywhere and that lovely warm sunshine. Turkey vultures all over our tamarisk tree last week suggested that Spring is here and this was confirmed by a huge gobble of turkey vultures on a cottonwood tree by the Surprise Valley water well a few days later.
Wow, March just blew through didn’t it? It’s the April Community Breakfast next week, April 2nd, yay! Everybody’s favorite day of the month. It’s also the end of an era: our very last $5.00 All-American Breakfast, including unlimited access to the coffee pot. We have been forced to raise the price of the Adults Breakfast to $7.00 per person; the Child Breakfast price remains $2.50. All the food choices and beverages remain the same: fresh squeezed orange juice or V-8; Eggs; Bacon or sausage; home fried potatoes; pancakes; biscuits and gravy or toast, with unlimited coffee. Our Oatmeal Special, brimmin’ with trimmin’s and other monthly side dishes will continue to be offered.
Rising costs and dwindling funds made this price increase inevitable and it will go into effect at the May 7th Breakfast. We are sincerely hoping that most of our guests won’t blink an eye and will cheerfully fork over the extra two bucks per person to help keep their beloved Center going. However, as we all know, Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center, stewarded by the volunteers and members of the CMMC Association, has been a friendly face and a full, happy tummy to many of our low-income Neighbors for decades and we aim to keep it that way. So no worries if the wallet won’t stretch any further, we will figure something out, okay? Seeing your face is worth way more than 2 bucks!
