The 57th annual Kiwanis breakfast kicks off Monday from 6:30-10 a.m,. in the parking lot next to E.H. Hurst Insurance on South Maine Street.

Tradition calls for candidates seeking public office to come to the breakfast and meet the local residents. Those expected to attend are Sen. Dean Heller, Congressman Mark Amodei, Gov. Brian Sandoval, Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki and State Sen. Mark Hutchison, who will be cutting melons.
