TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT) - Volunteers of the Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints were cooking up a storm Saturday morning for their Fourth of July breakfast held at the church on Maurice Street.
The annual event attracted approximately 500 to 600 people. Most of the attendees were members of the congregate, but the event was open to the whole community.
The event consisted of a flag ceremony, the "Star-Spangled Banner", activities for the kids, a free breakfast, and keynote speaker Gregory Wicker who talked about patriotism.
L.D.S. President of the Twin Falls Stake Mitchell Moffitt said, “We value the freedom that we enjoy in this country and we find that this is one way that we can celebrate that and teach our children about how important it is to support liberty and to be grateful for what we have in this country.”
The congregation hopes to attract more community members in future events.
