Start your day with a homecooked breakfast on Saturday, Aug. 6, 8 – 10:30 a.m.,  and as a bonus you will help get the school year off to a good start.

The Democratic headquarters in Columbus will host a community breakfast for a small contribution that will go toward the purchase of classroom supplies for the students in Polk County elementary schools.

The morning will include a full farm fresh breakfast of blueberry pancakes, locally made sausage, egg casserole and fruit.

Funding cuts to the state education budget have cut supplies to schools. This means teachers and students need your help to purchase those supplies. That is why the local

Democratic Women’s Club has come forward to fill the gap with your help.

A special appeal goes to the parents, grandparents and families of elementary students at Sunny View, Polk Central, Tryon and Saluda schools, since all monies contributed at this breakfast will be given to teachers at these schools.

The Democratic headquarters is located at 64 Ward Street in Columbus, just down from the Columbus Farmer’s Market.
