History Was Made

Things began at 4am this morning as a small crew of 5 started setting up the first annual 4thf July breakfast fundraiser. By the time dawn hit Ron and Pam Yates, Marv Peirce, Mike and Michael Vanderpool had the griddles churning out pancakes, hashbrowns, scrambled eggs and the Falls Brand ham was being heated in the roasters. Getting off to a slow start and gaining momentum around 8am the breakfast that people said would be impossible to pull off was a reality as dozens stopped by to start their day with a hearty meal.

As patriotic music played over the sound system, Don Hall and his lovely wife managed the “front of house”  while volunteers like Kevin and Debbie Dane handled serving the food and beverages joined by a small team of gloved assistants. In the “back of house” or kitchen area Brian Croner, Peggy Kidd, Pam Yates and a crew of volunteers kept the food on the  front line stocked and fresh. The Girls Scouts were in the house as was a Boy Scout to help with things.

By the end of the breakfast over 350 people had been fed and more than a thousand dollars was raised for next years fireworks.  

 At 10:17pm the nighttime skies erupted in a grand display of patriotism as the music rang out from the Locally Owned Radio, Canyon 106.5 van. Tonight was an awesome night and this 4th of July will go down as one of the best ever.  

Thank you to all the volunteers and everyone that donated to make everything possible. Today we captured a piece of Twin Falls history that will become a tradition all of our children will enjoy for years to come.
