Hopkinton Vets Breakfast
3 May 2019

Recent Vets Breakfasts have had strong attendance, and everyone has enjoyed the animated discussions of veterans history. Won't you try a taste of a good thing? Hopkinton veterans will gather for breakfast on 3 May 2019, at 0900 hours, at the Hopkinton Senior Center to share hot chow and warm camaraderie.

Our comrades who passed away during April will be remembered, and the condition of those on "Sick Call" will be updated. This is a good opportunity to remind ourselves to be generous with our time to visit and/or to send cards and notes to our ailing buddies. Keep up the good work. More of us should do this.

After breakfast we will recall memories of military events that previously occurred on May 3rd; for example, a German delegation met with British Field Marshal Montgomery outside of Hamburg, Germany, offering the surrender of more than one million men.

Other announcements will keep you abreast of Hopkinton happenings relating to veterans.

A free breakfast and lunch will be awarded to the first person who correctly answers the monthly baseball quiz: 1903 was the Red Sox first World Series; what NL team did they compete with; did the Red Sox win or lose?

Hopkinton veterans with transportation difficulties should call Marlene Troupes on/before 1 May 2019, 508 497-9730. Please encourage other veterans to attend the breakfast.

American Legion McDonough-Carlberg Post 202 will lead the Pledge of Allegiance, and bless the meal.

See you Friday. Out.
