FORT MADISON – The second annual Riverfest Charity Breakfast will take place from 8:00 AM until 12 Noon Sunday August 6th under the big tent in Fort Madison’s Riverview Park. 100 percent of the proceeds raised on the day of the breakfast will be used to send Lee County Veterans on the Great River Honor Flight to Washington DC in order to visit the Military Memorials.
American Legion Post 82 in Fort Madison is staffing this years breakfast and will be doing the cooking and serving on the 6th. Dan Vice is the Commander of the local post. “Each year raising funds for the Honor Flight is our number 1 Community Project. When Riverfest approached us about being the beneficiary of this year’s breakfast we were happy to get involved. This event will help launch our annual campaign for the Honor Flight”.
The menu for this years breakfast will feature Sausage Patties, Scrambled Eggs, Hash Browns, Biscuits and Gravy, Pancakes, Coffee, Orange Juice and Milk. The cost of the breakfast will be a free will donation to The Great River Honor Flight. In addition Shuttle Service will be available from the Riverview Park parking lots to the breakfast site.
According to Vice, sponsors for the breakfast will cover the actual cost of the event. “We would like to thank Fareway Food Stores, Kohl Wholesale, Lee County Bank and the Fort Madison Elks Lodge for getting involved. Because of their support 100 percent of the money raised at the breakfast will help send up to seven Lee County Veterans on the Honor Flight. We are hoping for a big crowd and would like to invite everyone to stop in and support our Veterans.”
Riverfest is a 4 day celebration of music and family fun on the Fort Madison Riverfront August 3rd through August 6th.
