Lighter Fare At Old Bill’s Breakfast

OB 2012

Plans are taking shape for the 16th Annual Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities, September 8th with one major change in store for participants.  In the past, participants had been served hot breakfast burritos, sweet rolls and fruit along with fruit juices after the race.  This year, Old Bills Spokesperson Nicki McDermott says the participants will receive lighter refreshments provided at the town square. McDermott says those will include a yogurt parfait, made with locally-produced granola from the Bunnery which is also providing the other items for the breakfast.  McDermott explains that fire regulations have limited what can be done with the post-race foods due to the limited space, and that has dictated they be limited to cold refreshments.  Over the past fifteen years, the event has raised nearly $83-million dollars for the area’s non-profits — $7¾-million dollars last year alone.  McDermott says this year, about 210 organizations are participating in the fundraising event.  Those helping raise the money for their favorite organizations can walk or run various lengths of the race, either competitively or recreationally.  Once again, over 3,500 people are anticipated for what has become one of the biggest celebrations of community spirit and support in the country. In addition to the Fun Run and Walk, the event will have entertainment, food and informational booths set up around the town square through the morning.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
