Sponsorships available for breakfast

TROY — There are a limited number of table sponsorships left for the Character Breakfast benefitting Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program in Miami County. The buffet breakfast will be held from 9-11 a.m. March 12 at the Fort Piqua Plaza Ballroom and is being catered by Mrs. B’s. This story book character breakfast will delight children of all ages and will benefit all Miami County children enrolled in the program.

Children will be able to interact with the story book characters and will also be able to visit with the Piqua, Tipp City, and West Milton mayors who will read stories to them.
