FARMER — The Farmer Civitans monthly breakfast combines this Saturday with a restored sign and trail unveiling.
The Oct. 1 country breakfast will be open from 7-10 a.m.. The cost is $8 per person for all you can eat of Thomas Brothers Ham and Sausage, eggs, grits, pancakes, coffee, water and orange juice.
The breakfast will take place at the Farmer Civitan House located at the intersection of Dunbar Bridge Road and Old NC Highway 49.
Meanwhile, at 9 a.m., the Farmer Civitans, in conjunction with the Farmer Historical Preservation Society, Inc., will reveal a restored sign marking the trail and historical events from the 1700s, which include the crossing of the Uwharrie River using that trail by Gov. Tryon and his Army on May 25, 1771 , by the Stagecoach in the 1800s and an Indian Battle in the 1750s.
This sign stood in front of the Old Farmer School for many years and was recently found in the auditorium. George Greer has carefully painted the carved words and refurbished the boards to commemorate this trail.
