Volunteers Prepare for "Breakfast on the Farm"

Over a hundred volunteers showed up Friday night in preparation for the "Breakfast on the Farm" program being hosted at the Jim May Farm at 7947 Fruitridge Ave in Alpine Township this morning. The program, which is run in cooperation with the Michigan State University Extension Service and the Farm Bureau, expects to feed up to 2,000 city slickers who will come to learn about farm operation and food production.  There is no charge for the breakfast, but tickets are required.  Five thousand  tickets were distributed at local establishments.  The program runs from 8:00 a.m - 1:00 p.m. with free breakfasts being served from 9:00  a.m. - 12:00 noon.
