TERRYVILLE – There was cheerfulness and joy in the air inside The Lyceum Sunday morning, as families came together for a Mother’s Day Breakfast.

The Terryville Lions Club has hosted this event every Mother’s Day for at least three decades, excluding 2020 and 2021.

“It’s a nice comeback for us, our first year back because of the pandemic,” Chairman Brian Luba explained. “Unfortunately not a blockbuster event for us but we hope next year is better than ever.”

About 220 people attended the breakfast, a few hundred less than in years past, pre-pandemic.

Lizette Pelletier’s three children joined her around one of the tables, which she helped set up along with fellow Lions Club members Saturday.

“We try to help out where we can,” Pelletier said. “It was nice to do something for the other mothers in this community.”

She works the breakfast every year and then sits down to enjoy the meal as well.

“They always do a real good job,” Pelletier added. “I really enjoy coming here.”

Mothers young and old sat with their children young and old, at tables decorated with flowers and all the breakfast accoutrements: sugar, salt, maple syrup, cream, coffee stirrers.

There was also an auction and tea cup raffle set up for attendees to participate in during their visit.

After filling their bellies with some morning sustenance, people headed out the door and off to explore their next Mother’s Day plans.

The breakfast was as one of the Lions’ first fundraisers of the year, but it will definitely not be their last.

In fact, the whole community is looking forward to the Terryville Lions Country Fair, set to take place Aug. 26-28.
