Military veterans from Anderson County are once again invited to come together this weekend for a community veterans breakfast, and welcome in the New Year.
The breakfast, hosted by Anderson County citizens, is locally co-sponsored this month by Ryan Spitzer.
The breakfast will be held Jan. 8 at the Clinton Community Center, 101 S. Hicks St.
The “chow line” opens at 8:30 a.m. and there will be a brief program at 9 a.m. honoring veterans.
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.
Veterans are welcome to bring spouses, family, or friends with them.
The city of Clinton is recognized as a special sponsor for hosting the monthly location and setup.
Local media are especially recognized for their role in letting veterans know about the breakfast each month.
Feb. 12’s breakfast is sponsored by the Clinton Lions Club; March 12’s is sponsored by Brian Hunt; April 9’s is sponsored by Lewis Ridenour; and May 14’s is sponsored by William “Bear” Stephenson.
