Veterans community breakfast is Saturday

Military veterans from Anderson County are invited to come together Saturday for a community breakfast to honor veterans.

The breakfast, hosted by Anderson County citizens, is locally sponsored this month by Ray Varner Ford.

The breakfast will be held 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 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.

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 set up. 

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.

Coming up: The July 13 breakfast is sponsored by state Rep. John Ragan; Aug. 10 is sponsored by the Clinton High School Athletic Department; Sept. 14 is sponsored by the Clinton High School Air Force JROTC Dragon Squadron; Oct. 12 is sponsored by Rebecca Watts with Humana; Nov. 9 sponsorship is pending; December 14 is sponsored by Gentivahs and Brent Wallace.
