VFW Breakfast: Different name, same Fall Ride tradition
By Sarah Greil
TOMAHAWK – The Wurl-Feind-Ingman VFW Post 2687, 203 S. 4th St., Tomahawk, has been offering “Breakfast with a Vet” once a month since 2015. This year, it will be offered during the Northwoods Fall Ride for the second year since they took a break for the COVID-19 pandemic.
The breakfast will be the same, but the name will be different.
Post Commander Robert Soward explained that many people, when they hear “Breakfast with a Vet,” think they are going to sit down and have breakfast with veterans. On the contrary, it is veterans who serve the breakfast.
So, the name has simply been changed to “VFW Breakfast.”
The VFW Breakfast will be open to the public each morning during Northwoods Fall Ride from Thursday, Sept. 14 through Saturday, Sept. 16 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. On the menu are pancakes, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, sausage links, fruits, sweets, coffee and juice. The full bar will also be open.
The cost is $12.00 per person, with proceeds going towards helping local veterans and their families, as well as other programs that the VFW supports.
Specifically, this year, money raised will be used to put in a new entrance with a wheelchair ramp and remodel the bathrooms in the upper hall to make them wheelchair-accessible.
A new mural of William Wurl, Rodger Feind and Einar H. Ingman Jr., the VFW Post’s namesakes, was expected to be ready to view during the Northwoods Fall Ride.
