If you are in the southern Illinois area tomorrow, I know where you can get a good breakfast.
The Lincoln-Douglas Jonesboro Debate Committee will be hosting a Breakfast Fund-Raiser from 8 – 10 a.m. at the Community Center (just north of the square). For $5, you get your choice of biscuits & gravy or eggs.
- Debate t-shirts will be available for $15
- The winners of the Gazette-Democrat coloring contest will be announced
But that’s only the beginning!
The festivities continue at the debate site at Lincoln Memorial Park. You can walk the ½ mile to the debate site like Lincoln did in 1858 or you can take a horse-drawn buggy to the site like Douglas.
- Children’s games will begin at the park at 9:30 am
- Lincoln Look Alike awards will be announced at 10 am
All proceeds will go toward the 2008 Debate sesquicentennial celebration next year.
