Breakfast to feed the Fiddletown Schoolhouse fund

Autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the colorful fall foliage and a hearty morning meal out in the country.

Visitors are invited to attend the Fiddletown Preservation Society’s all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet and bake sale Sunday, Nov. 3 from 8 a.m.-noon at the Fiddletown Community Center. All proceeds benefit the restoration of the original one-room Fiddletown Schoolhouse on American Flat Road. Once restoration is complete, the schoolhouse will serve as a community learning and cultural center for small concerts, art and historical exhibits, and other public and private events.

The structure was built in 1862 and served children in grades first through eighth until 1955 when the school closed and students began attending school in the town of Plymouth 6 miles away.

The Fiddletown Preservation Society began restoration efforts in 1964. The inside renovation is mostly done. The inside plumbing is complete — lines from the building to a septic holding tank are in; however the building still does not have a hookup to a septic system. The schoolhouse still needs repairs to the failing foundation on the north side where the wall is bowing out. Guests will be welcome to visit the schoolhouse during the breakfast.

Prices for the breakfast are $10 for adults, $3 for ages 6 to 16 and $1 for ages 5 and under. Menu includes: French toast, scrambled eggs, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, bacon and sausage, pastry and muffins, fresh fruit, milk, orange juice and coffee.

A separate bake sale will also be available for guests to take home a piece of Fiddletown country goodness.

The group is selling a new publication, “Fiddletown Schoolhouse Memories,” based on interviews with former students of the Fiddletown/Oleta School conducted by historian Elaine Zorbas.

For more information contact Fiddletown Preservation Society President Alice Kaiser at 209-245-6042 or via e-mail at alicekaiser@hotmail.com. Visit the FPS Website at fiddletown.info for more information.
