To Host Fall Fest and Breakfast
24-Year Tradition in Daly City Continues This Sunday, October 3rd

Daly City – Craving for an all-American breakfast with all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, orange juice and coffee – for only $2.50? Then swing by Westlake Park this Sunday morning, October 3rd. This event, which first began in 1981 to mark the one year anniversary of the senior center, will be held where it all started 24 years ago, at 101 Lake Merced Boulevard in Daly City. The Supporters of Doelger Senior Center, Inc. and the City Council of Daly City will host the annual community-wide Fall Festival. Opening ceremonies will begin at 10 a.m..

“This annual fall get-together also serves as a way for the City Council and the Supporters of Doelger Senior Center to show our appreciation to the seniors in our community, by offering them the best breakfast deal in town,” remarked Daly City Mayor Sal Torres.

The pancake breakfast will have two seatings. The first will start at 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.; the second is from 10 a.m. to noon. For the late-morning risers who prefer to skip breakfast, an international lunch at $5 per plate will be served from 11 a.m. until 1:30 in the afternoon.

From noon until 2 p.m., live entertainment, which includes the San Mateo Elks Band, will be provided throughout the afternoon. A hat fashion show, class demonstrations, ukulele selections, Polynesian and tap dances, and singing with Judy Miller are all in the day’s program. If you have a sweet tooth, a bake sale will take place in the Deli. For lovers of fine art, there will be a painting exhibit, and for green thumbs, a plant sale. For sale on the patio area will be ceramics.

A raffle, with a top prize of $500, is scheduled at the end of the day. The tickets are being sold for $1 each. The lucky ticket holders have a chance to win a color TV, four box seat tickets to the Grand National Rodeo, and other prizes.

Transportation will be provided to and from Westlake Park at various locations throughout Daly City. For more information, call (650) 991-8298.

Proceeds from the Fall Festival will help fund the Doelger Senior Center, which provides comprehensive services and programs to Daly City’s growing senior adult community.
