The volunteers who are the Riverbank Historical Society hosted another successful After Mother’s Day Omelette Breakfast over the weekend.

The event, held the Sunday after Mother’s Day yearly, is the means by which the society raises its operating funds for the coming year.

Folks who partook of the breakfast goodies received a custom cooked omelette, made with the ingredients each diner chose, with a generous fruit cup and a choice of pastries on the side. In addition, there were mimosas available for sale.

At the end of the morning, before all the materials and gear were packed up, society volunteers handled the drawings involved for the items provided by individuals and local businesses. Winners did not need to be present to win, so those who weren’t around at closing but had their tickets drawn will be contacted by society volunteers.

The society operates the Riverbank Historical Museum, 3237 Santa Fe, in downtown. It is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. Fundraising efforts are ongoing to build an annex that will house the society’s 1919 Ford Fire Engine, nicknamed River Red, as well as expanded displays, storage space and educational facilities.
