Breakfast today was another success for Emporia Sertoma Club. Served up @ 500 meals to members of the community. Lots of opportunity for fellowship. There was a group of ESU school of nursing students helping during the fundraiser, serving drinks, helping people to tables, drinks and the monster effort of doing the kitchen dishes, huge job. Thanks the the girls for all their hard work. Think they pre-sold some tickets also.
Thanks to the Emporia Sponsors for this years sponsorship’s.
