Sports Bar Takes on Project City Council Can’t Afford

A boat ramp in Montrose that is in desperate need of repair will hopefully get a makeover after this weekend’s fundraiser at Kinnick on the River, a sports bar in Montrose.

The Montrose City Council decided not to put any funds towards the project due to higher priorities, so the bar got involved and asked permission to hold a “ramp fundraiser” this Saturday.

Manager of Kinnick on the River, Don Callahan, says they feel it’s their duty to help…

“We’re helping because the river brings a lot of business to us. We also want to pay the city as a goodwill gesture.”

Kinnick’s fundraising goal is $2,700 – $3,000.

The fundraiser to repair the boat ramp at the Mississippi riverfront harbor in Montrose is this Saturday beginning at 3pm with fried chicken, potato salad, and baked beans.”
