Invitation and Reminder from Hank Allessio for the upcoming May Veterans Breakfast:

Dear Vets and Friends:

The Senior Center mess hall will serve breakfast for Veterans on Friday, 3 May 2013, at or before 0900 hours. The menu includes eggs, bacon, hash, home fries, biscuits, plenty of coffee -- and chipped beef. Please invite your friends who don't receive this email.

Veterans Remember is fully posted; visit some of your friends. Now that Dick Gooding has returned from his cold-weather holiday, more Vets are being sought to have a conversation in front of the HCAM-TV lens. How about you? If not, what about encouraging one of your buddies?

The Photo Gallery is nearly up-to-date. 473 photos are waiting for your visit. One photo soon to be posted is of John Long (B Street) who was one of three Hopkinton Marines who experienced the Frozen Chosin. Your recruiting is needed for more photos. Everyone who ever lived in Hopkinton and wore a uniform should be standing tall with you in the Hopkinton Vets Photo Gallery.

Here's the free breakfast opportunity. You need to correctly answer the question: who is a well-known retired Major League player who was in a Little League World Series final, and in a College World Series final, and in a Major League World Series final? A consolation prize (not a free breakfast) is the enjoyment of a vintage baseball photo. Friday's Vets breakfast will be the 70th anniversary of the snapping of the photo. Click Here for photo. I wonder who it is?

Anyone with transportation difficulties can call Judi Allessio by Wednesday, 1 May 2013, 508 497-9730.

The Pledge of Allegiance and the blessing of our meal will be led by members of the American Legion McDonough-Carlberg Post 202.

See you Friday. Out.
