The committee for the Jefferson County Dairy Breakfast is hard at work planning this years event, which will be held on Saturday, May 21st. The event will again be held at the Jefferson Fair Park, so will be comfortable rain or shine. The ticket price will remain the same as the last few years, $7.00 at the door and $6.00 in advance. All proceeds from the breakfast will go towards scholarships and grants for groups in Jefferson County. The wonderful turnout last year and the generosity of our sponsors, enabled us to give over $8000.00 in scholarships and grants since last years breakfast!
There will be some exciting news about the activities at this years breakfast, that will be posted here as soon as those plans are finalized, so come back and visit this site again.
Thanks for coming back! The scholarship and grant applications have been added to the site and I can now let you know there will be exciting games and more animals available for petting this year! There will still be free blood pressure tests, pictures can be taken with the dairy princesses and with various celebrities or a calf. There will be races, milk drinking contests, mini tractor pulls, cowboy and cowgirl dress up contests, tractor pulled wagons to and from the parking lot, dogs herding sheep, radio station interviews, live music and many vendors. And don’t forget the delicious breakfast! Hope to see you all there!
