SIDNEY -- The green was plentiful early this St. Patrick's Day, including that offered in support of the King's Daughters Friday morning.
The morning started at 6 a.m. with early risers arriving at The Rock with the sun, and an offer of a plate of scrambled eggs, bacon and pancakes.
Donations for the King's Daughters were accepted in lieu of a charge. The breakfast brought in $1,340 for the King’s Daughters during the Third Annual Big Boy BIG St. Paddy’s Day Party breakfast at The Rock Sports Bar And Grill.
