The Kampsville Summer Celebration committee was up and actually saw the sunrise together working hard to prepare for the Celebration Breakfast Fundraiser. We had a lot of fun and so many laughs. Part of the prep begin on Friday evening and there was a lot of laughs then too. Mayor Wade, Brenda Johnson, Rob and Kim Parameter, Debby Klunk, Olivia Clowers, Meghan Klunk, James Palmer, Nina Wilson and myself all had a great time. There is nothing better than when it’s so much fun it doesn’t even seem like work. Thank you so much to the Kampsville Legion for the use of your facilities and for always showing your support to us.
Thank you Mark and Debbie at the Pavilion for doing our ordering for us and for donating the tea and coffee.
Also thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed breakfast or picked up carry outs.
Time is getting close– Aug. 20 will be here before we know it. So we are really working hard to plan an amazing 150th Birthday for Kampsville as well as our Celebration. We would love to have participation in our parade as well as vendors. We are putting together some great baskets and we have basket donations coming in. Thank you to all who donated money toward the trophies for the kids stage games. Don’t forget to mark your calendars; you are not going to want to miss this fun-filled day.

Pat Gotway, Kathy Ellis, Curt and Carol Robeen enjoyed brunch at Pere Marquette with their 97-year-old aunt Virginia Robeen Fiedler. She is the only aunt left on the Curt and Elinore Robeen side of the family. Nieces and nephews from the family came near and far with a good size attendance to enjoy visiting with her at brunch.
