Veterans breakfast scheduled for Jan. 14 in Clinton
Military veterans from Anderson County are once again invited to come together Saturday, Jan. 14, for a community Veterans Breakfast to honor veterans.
The breakfast, hosted by Anderson County citizens, is locally sponsored this month by Fox Farley Willis & Burnett Attorneys at Law.
The breakfast will be held at the Clinton Community Center, 101 S. Hicks St., Clinton. 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 breakfasts a free monthly event that will allow veterans of all ages and branches to fellowship and share stories.
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.
Many generous donors are also recognized for providing regular monthly door prizes.
The Feb. 11 breakfast is sponsored by the Clinton Lions Club; March 11 is sponsored by Veterans of Foreign War Post 12051; April 8 is sponsored by Nuclear Care Partners; and May 13 is sponsored by the family of William Ward, World War II veteran.
