The Kampsville Summer Celebration Breakfast Bash fundraiser was held on Sunday morning from 6:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the American Legion in Kampsville.
The Kampsville Summer Celebration Committee was up bright and early to serve up breakfast to the hungry attendees. The event saw a large turnout and according to committee member, Diane Brangenberg, had a steady flow of people throughout the morning.
“So many people came out to support the event,” she said. “It’s amazing how much our small community can do. We really come together.”
The breakfast consisted of biscuits and gravy, two pieces of sausage, pancakes, cinnamon roll, and a beverage.
Preparations for the event began on Friday evening and working to put on the event was Mayor Wade Gibson; committee members, Brenda Johnson, Rob and Kim Parmenter, Debby Klunk, Olivia Clowers, Meghan Klunk, James Palmer, Nina Wilson and Brangenberg.
The committee extended their gratitude to the Kampsville Legion for the use of their facilities and for showing their support. They also thanked Mark and Debbie at the Pavilion for doing the ordering and donating tea and coffee. They also extended thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed breakfast or picked up carry outs.
All funds raised during the breakfast will go toward the Kampsville Summer Celebration that will take place on Saturday, Aug. 20. This year is the Village’s Sesquicentennial (150th birthday). In addition to a parade at 11:30 that morning, there will be vendors, games, music, pageants, BBQ, bounce houses, and more. The committee also welcomed the Village of Kampsville Fish Stand to this year’s Summer Celebration.
The committee was also selling 150th anniversary t-shirts at the door of the Breakfast Bash, which remain on sale.
