The Kalona Rotary Club will host its annual Omelet Breakfast on Saturday, May 4 at the Kalona United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall from 6:45 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.

Each year the Rotarians contribute the funds raised at the Omelet Breakfast to a worthy cause in the community. Last year funds were donated to Pathway Christian Schools. This year proceeds from the event will be donated to the Pleasantview Home’s new construction project.

The Kalona Rotarians cook and serve omelets to over 400 people the first Saturday in May every year. Omelets are made to order with onions, ham, green peppers, cheese and salsa if you wish.  In addition there are cinnamon rolls and coffee, juice and milk.

“We really appreciate the community supporting our omelet breakfast because it allows us to improve our community through the donated funds,” commented Rotarian Dr. Chris Grier who has chaired the event for the past 10 years. Helping coordinate the event this year is Rotarian Jim Johnson as well.

“And we really appreciate the donations and special discounts that many of the area businesses donate to the Rotarians to help with the projects,” Grier added.
