If you have a healthy appetite, you might want to stop by the Maple Park American Legion during Fun Fest Sunday and Monday, where almost any breakfast fare you would like will be laid out in buffet fashion, thanks to the organization’s volunteers.

“We have the whole nine yards,” Legion member Keith Nickels said.

Among the breakfast’s many offerings are fruit, scrambled eggs, French toast, bacon, sausage, and biscuits and gravy.

Nickels said the event usually has a strong attendance, particularly between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m., during the softball tournament at the Community Center.

It takes about 30 Legion members to host the breakfast, some cooking, some serving.

The cost is $8, and $6 for those 10 and younger. The Legion hall is located at 203 Main St., Maple Park.
