The Last Saturday Community Breakfast and Omelet Buffet, sponsored by Citizens for a Better Grand Bay, was June 27 at Grand Bay-St. Elmo Community and Senior Center. Approximately 50-60 people attended this monthly event, where they heard Kimon Brown tell the latest news from the Compassionate Care Team and the group's efforts to decrease homelessness in the area.
Diners passing through the food line were entertained by the Pickers and Grinners--John Wilson, Ken de Angelo, Rachel Baxter and Dennis Tubbs--who cheered the early morning crowd with Bette Midler's "The Rose," John Denver's "Today" and Bob Wills' "Across the Alley from the Alamo."
Among those who made very short announcements were Bayou La Batre Mayor Brett Dungan, Monnie Tripp from the Grand Bay Fire Department Board of Trustees and Patty Tripp, Events Chair of the Grand Bay Watermelon Festival July 3 and 4. Mobile County Commissioner Jerry Carl was among the guests.
The next Community Breakfast will be Saturday, July 25, 9-10 a.m. A $5 donation per person goes to help support community projects of Citizens for a Better Grand Bay.
