Enjoy a delicious breakfast, featuring real maple syrup, this weekend as Dover-Foxcroft celebrates Maine Maple Sunday.

When I was growing up, my grandfather used to tap trees and make his own syrup. I remember walking through the snow, into the woods, to check his sap buckets, and making treats with maple syrup and new snow. I've been reminded of that experience lately, watching my neighbor take his young son to check their own tapped trees.

Maine Maple Sunday is a great chance for anyone who loves the taste of maple to not only sample some treats, but also see how the syrup is made. And a delicious breakfast is the perfect way to start off the day.

From 7 to 10 this Sunday morning, feast on eggs, bacon, sausage, homemade home fries, coffee, juice, tea, and milk, along with the pancakes and french toast. The maple syrup on your table will be donated from Bob's Sugar House, which will have plenty of fun, tasty, and educational events going on, both Saturday and Sunday.

Breakfast is being served in the Foxcroft Academy gymnasium, by the Shiretown Homecoming Committee. It's just $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and kids, with the proceeds to benefit future homecoming festivities.
