at Calexico One Stop Employment Center

CALEXICO — While most of us will be in the middle of a sound sleep at 3 a.m. Dec. 7, a 22-year-old Imperial Valley tradition will be in full swing.
The 22nd annual Farm Worker Appreciation Breakfast is going to be held that morning at the Calexico One Stop Employment Service Center.
The breakfast will run from 3 to 6 a.m.
What started in 1979 with a handful of employees from the Imperial Valley Employment Development Department serving coffee and doughnuts — purchased with their own money — has turned into an annual event attracting close to 3,500 farm workers.
