Sunday Breakfast

 The local VFW Post serves breakfast on the third Sunday of every month. This morning Sisty and I attended. I had some of the best bacon I’ve ever eaten. Cost? $9 a head.

All the profits go to a fund to help veterans in need.

I learned today parts of the building were salvaged from a dismantled nearby  WWII P.O.W.

For some reason I hadn’t known about these breakfast but will likely become a regular customer. Especially, for the great bacon!

Interesting read on the German POWs, and the sugar beet industry here. I knew sugar beets were important here long ago, and they used the leafy tops to feed lambs, making Fort Collins the "Lamb Feeding Capital of The World".

Interesting how a whole industry like the sugar beet farming withered away and died in a relatively short time.

Glad you had a great breakfast!

Good food for a good cause! That works!

A blow the beet industry never recovered from was the Hunt Brothers downfall.
At the time they owned most of the sugar plants in the area. Those plants never reopened.

Beets are still processed in Fort Morgan, Torrington, and Scottsbluff.

Sunday brunch is about the only time I eat out. As much as I enjoy "The Ranch" restaurant I will probably start eating once a month at the VFW.

Top breakfast, but isn't 9 bucks pricey? Good cause, tho.

Local places, chicken fried steak with sides and coffee will run about $12 with the tip.

I remember the Hunt brothers and their sliver binge, but didn't know they were into sugar as well.

They owned Great Western.
