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.

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife. And even offer suggestions to the Game and Fish Commission when we think there are better ways to ensure that […]

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
