VFW Father’s Day breakfast proceeds go to service members

GENEVA — The Geneva Post 06846 of the VFW held a Father’s Day pancake and sausage brunch on Sunday. The brunch was sponsored by Blue Star Mothers Chapter 57.

Blue Star Mothers local treasurer Dottie Micco said the event was coordinated with the VFW Auxiliary. It was the Blue Star Mothers chapter’s first Father’s Day Brunch

“We are the mothers of sons and daughters in the service,” Micco said. “Mothers of deceased service people are Gold Star Mothers.”

She said cooking for the event started early in the morning. It lasted from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

“All the proceeds form the brunch and lottery tree will go to service members,” she said. “We make troop boxes for service members overseas.”

She said the boxes contain tooth paste, travel things and food. She noted that a picnic will be held on July 30 for vets from Wade Park VFW in Cleveland.
