CLINTON—Military veterans from Anderson County are once again invited to come together this weekend for a community Veterans Breakfast after a long break for safety-related measures preventing COVID-19.
The breakfast, hosted by Anderson County citizens, is locally sponsored this month by Lieutenant Governor Randy McNally and State Representative John Ragan.
The breakfast will be held Saturday, September 11th at the Clinton Community Center, 101 S. Hicks Street, Clinton. The “Chow line” opens at 8:30 a.m. and there will be a brief program at 9 a.m. honoring veterans.
All 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.
