The Discovery Center and Museum will host its annual Pioneer Breakfast on Saturday, October 13, as part of the "Historic The Dalles Day" celebration.
An old-fashioned breakfast will be served from 8:30 to 11 a.m. in the Basalt Rock Cafe located at the Discovery Center and Museum. Admission to the Center is not required to enter the Cafe.
"Our annual Pioneer Breakfast is becoming widely known," said Beth Kirschhofer, public programs coordinator and Forest Service interpreter for the Center. "We are excited to be involved in Historic The Dalles Day. Events such as this allow the entire community to educate one another about our region's rich history."
The pioneer breakfast will kick off the one-day celebration throughout The Dalles. Every historical organization and museum in the area will be represented during this event, and each will have an opportunity to emphasize its facility.
"This gives us an excellent opportunity to not only serve a tasty home cooked breakfast, but to share our beautiful and unique Center with our community and others," said Mike Perry, executive director for the Center. "It's becoming a tradition!"
In the Center's outside Living History Park there will be a special living history presentation given by Gary Van Orman. He will portray Mr. Branch, an "emigrant river man" living during the Oregon Trail era of 1848. His performance will begin at 9 a.m. and is free to the public.
