SLIDESHOW: Breakfast for the Birds: A sign of spring
March 1, 2011 · 9:14 AM
Even though there was snow on the ground Feb. 23, the Enumclaw Garden Club’s 46th annual Breakfast for the Birds is a sure sign spring is on its way.
The breakfast and silent auction, which took place in the Enumclaw High School commons, drew more than 230 guests.
The breakfast began as a brunch in 1964 by a group called the Gay Bonnets. There were nine committee members who met at the Sacred Heart Church. Approximately 200 ladies attended then as well. Following the hat parade and meal, the ladies would engage in an afternoon of cards. In time, the Gay Bonnets evolved into the Enumclaw Garden Club and the Breakfast for the Birds.
The breakfast also featured guest speaker, national garden personality and Enumclaw resident Marianne Binetti.
Hat parade winners were: Margie Ross, Anything Goes; Diane Franchini, Beaks, Feet and Feathers; Jennifer Hansen, Home Tweet Home; Helen Reed, Recycled Retro, and Beatrice Warnes, Vision of Beauty.
Proceeds from the event support Rails to Trails, Make a Difference Day, Headquarters House, Dover Project and the Eleanor Prezzo's Bench Fund.
