Pancake breakfast and cruise in at Mills River Presbyterian Church to benefit Meals on Wheels


Press release from Mills River Presbyterian Church:

On Saturday, June 18, 2016 from 9am to 11am, Mills River Presbyterian Church will host a Father’s Day weekend activity open to everyone in the Asheville and Hendersonville area: a $4 Pancake Breakfast and Cruise In. Members of local car clubs have been asked to provide vehicles for the Cruise In. All proceeds will benefit the Henderson County Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels program.

From 9am to 11am, people can come to the Fellowship Hall at Mills River Presbyterian Church to get a full pancake breakfast (complete with pancakes, sausage patty, juice and coffee) for just $4 per person. People can either eat at the church or get to-go take-out orders. While at the church, participants can view the vintage vehicles that will be on display in the front parking area of the church.

“We’re excited that Meals on Wheels was selected as the recipient of proceeds from this Father’s Day weekend activity,” says Wendy Lou Billings, outreach and resource development coordinator for the Council on Aging for Henderson County. “Meals on Wheels is a great complement to the cruise in scheduled at the church. We’re also hoping to educate local residents on the importance of our Meals on Wheels program that provides more than 1,000 hot, nutritious meals each week for at-risk older adults in Henderson County.”

The $4 tickets for the Pancake Breakfast will be sold at the door, starting at 8:45am on June 18th.

Mills River Presbyterian Church, which hosts other unique community events during the year such as Puzzlefest and the Blessing of the Pets, is located at 10 Presbyterian Church Road in Mills River, accessible from Haywood Road or Highway 280. For more information, call 828-891-7101.
