Free breakfast for veterans Oct. 12

Military veterans from Anderson County are invited to come together Saturday, Oct. 12, for a community Veterans Breakfast.

The breakfast, hosted by Anderson County citizens, is sponsored this month by Tim Shelton. The breakfast will be held 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.

In addition, Walgreens will be onsite providing veterans with free flu shots. Eligible veterans should bring their Veterans cards or Medicare cards if they wish to receive a free flu shot.

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.

The city of Clinton is recognized as a special sponsor for hosting the monthly location and setup. Local media are specially recognized for their role in letting veterans know about the breakfast each month.

Nov. 9’s breakfast is sponsored by Brandon Pelizzari, Dec. 14’s is sponsored by Golden Corral, the Jan. 11 breakfast will be sponsored by Benchmark Physical Therapy and the Feb. 8 breakfast will be sponsored by the Clinton Lions Club.
