Fifth annual MLK breakfast adds cheesy grits

The MLK breakfast of chessy grits, scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes and all the trimmings will be on Monday, Jan. 21, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.

The breakfast is sponsored by the town of Mancos, Mancos Valley Chamber and the MLK Breakfast Committee.

The event was originally initiated by Nadia Hebard with a vision of supporting local growers and producers to serve at this breakfast, It has evolved into a welcome January event on the Mancos calendar. Cash donations are very welcome to keep the tradition moving forward by supporting our local gardeners, chicken-keepers, beekeepers, sausage-makers, etc. by purchasing their goods for the celebration.

There is no charge for the breakfast (donations are welcome!) and is open to everyone. School's out that day - bring the kids!

If you would like to participate in or contribute to this event, please contact Dian Law (522-7536), Betsy Harrison (533-1068) or Peggy Littlejohn (533-1053) or you can email dian (
