It was hot, sticky and humid.  But that didn't stop folks from attending the B&B Bowl Benefit Breakfast at the Fillmore County Fair Sunday July 24.  The 4-H food building smelled fantastic!  Hungry people started arriving around 7 a.m.  By eleven-thirty, there was nothing left but dirty pans!  In fact, egg bake ran out and the cooks resorted to frying eggs and hash browns to feed the last guests.  In the end, 300+ breakfasts were served. The proceeds will go to the B&B Bowl building fund.  The breakfast will now be an annual event with next year's proceeds going to another business or family in need.  In a statement on her Facebook page Sunday evening, B&B Bowl owner, Shelly Hanson, had the following to say:  "Thanks everyone for coming to our breakfast this morning, I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to personally say hi and thank you myself but we got a little crazy. Also regret that we ran out of food for those of you who got there late. I also want to thank all the folks that helped pull this off, Teresa Polhemus and Tom polhemus, Debra Finseth, Shirley Laqua, and Sharon, lindsi poppe, Shawna Poppe, Ross William Kiehne, Beau poppe, ilene edwards, Amanda Nelson, Tom klomps, Paul Hanson, Tracy Raaen, Karen Schimdt, and all the 4 H group who came and donated stuff, Pepsi, Brent Berge with US Foods, Rebecca Schwingle, Ilene Edwards, Mary hershberger, Devon J Krueger, Debra Finseth, and all the other folks that donated that I don't know about, and mostly for all of you just being there for us. Watch for a lot of action to be happening at the alley this week, I apologize if I missed anyone.Thanks again."  As an employee of the bowling alley myself, I second those thanks.  We appreciate the people of this community and the generosity that has been shown to us since the fire on January 1st.  Exciting things are happening this week with concrete projects finished and walls going up.  Thank you to everyone who has made this rebuild possible!  Photo credit Shelly Hanson and Ilene Edwards
