Military veterans from Anderson County are once again invited to come together this weekend for a community Veterans Breakfast.

The breakfast, hosted by Anderson County citizens, is sponsored this month by John K. Alley, Jr. and W.P. Thurman.

The breakfast will be held Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Clinton Community Center.

The “Chow line” opens at 8:30 a.m. and there will be a brief program at 9 a.m.

All of the Veterans Breakfasts will recognize and honor local veterans and their families for their service to the United States.

Anderson County residents and community volunteers are working together to make the breakfast a free monthly event that will allow veterans of all ages and branches to fellowship and share stories together. The City of Clinton is recognized as a special sponsor for hosting the monthly location and set up. Local media is especially recognized for their role in letting veterans know about the breakfast each month.

October 12th’s Breakfast is sponsored by Tim Shelton, November 9th’s Breakfast is sponsored by Brandon Pelizzari, December 14th’s Breakfast is sponsored by Golden Corral, and the January 11, 2020 Breakfast will be sponsored by Benchmark Physical Therapy.
