Hedy Watrous

Hedy Watrous, owner and chef at the Whistle Stop Café in Deep River, provides excellent service in more ways than one. Once a month, she serves four-course dinners where all the proceeds are donated to charity projects. For $35, guests are able to enjoy a dinner that is done entirely through volunteer work on behalf of the restaurant, including the band, and then every dollar that they donate goes towards helping others through the Haddam- Killingworth Rotary Club, which she is also involved with. Donations have benefited the Syrian Refugee Project, building schools, digging wells, and so much more.
