24th Annual Fiddletown Schoolhouse Buffet Breakfast & Bake Sale - Sun Nov 5

Autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the colorful fall foliage and a hearty morning meal out in the country. You are invited to attend the Fiddletown Preservation Society's all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet and bake sale on Sunday, November 5th, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the Fiddletown Community Center at 14445 Fiddletown Rd, Fiddletown, CA. All proceeds benefit the continued preservation of the original one-room Fiddletown Schoolhouse on American Flat Road.

The structure was built in 1862, and served children in grades 1 through 8 until 1955 when the school closed and students began attending school in the town of Plymouth six miles away. The FPS began restoration efforts in 1964. The renovations are now complete. The schoolhouse is currently available to serve as a community learning & cultural center for small concerts, art and historical exhibits, and other public and private events. The Schoolhouse will be open during the hours of the breakfast for visitors.

Prices for the breakfast are $12 for adults, $3 for ages 6 to 16 and $1 for ages 5 and under. The menu includes: French toast, scrambled eggs, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, bacon and sausage, pastry and muffins, fresh fruit, milk, orange juice, coffee & tea. A separate bake sale will also be available for guests to take home a piece of Fiddletown country goodness.

Additionally, the Fiddletown Preservation Society will have items of local interest for sale, including the booklet Fiddletown Schoolhouse Memories, which is based on interviews with former students of the Fiddletown/Oleta School conducted by historian Elaine Zorbas.
