Military veterans from Anderson County are once again invited to come together this weekend for a community Veterans Breakfast, a press release said.
The breakfast, hosted by Anderson County citizens and sponsored this month by Ray Varner Ford, will be held Saturday, October 8, at the Clinton Community Center. “Chow line” opens at 8:30 a.m., and there will be a brief program at 9 a.m., the press release said.
Varner will serve as master of ceremonies for the event, and the special speaker will be Commander Tommy Mariner, Senior Naval Science Instructor at Anderson County High School. Door prizes are provided this month by Ray Varner Ford.
All of the Veterans Breakfasts will recognize and honor local veterans and their families for their service to the United States, the press release said. There will also be a special moment of remembrance of 9/11.
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 press release said. The City of Clinton is recognized as a special sponsor for hosting the monthly location and set up.
Future monthly Veterans Breakfast sponsors include the family of William Ward for November 12 and Fox Toyota in Clinton for the December 10 breakfast. If you are interested in sponsoring a future Veterans Breakfast, contact Terry Frank at (865) 310-4097.
