The Island Breakfast Committee was created in 2014 to organize and run the annual Island Breakfast, a popular summer event. The Island Breakfast is a unique opportunity for citizens and visitors, who may not otherwise have access to the islands, to enjoy breakfast on Brockville’s Refugee Island and enjoy river life. The net proceeds from the breakfast events will be used to build a shelter, upgrade bathrooms and develop camping sites on Refugee Island. The first project will be to build a permanent picnic pavilion on the Island. To date, $25,000+ has been raised from this event to go towards the pavilion.
In 2016 we served 2,300 breakfasts that were enjoyed by patrons, sponsors, guests and of course the wonderful volunteers. Our volunteers had a great time with most of them planning to return to help out again in 2017.
The Island Breakfast Committee (IBC) is a committee of council under the City of Brockville. The City of Brockville has a variety of Committees, in addition to Council, that are working constantly to serve our community better. Minutes from previous IBC meetings can be found here.
