contribute's picture

Friday, 6 June 2014, is the 70th anniversary of D-Day -- the beach assaults at Normandy.

Enjoy breakfast at the Senior Center Mess Hall featuring chipped beef and other great chow on that anniversary date, at or about 0900 hours. The regulars show-up early for coffee and muffins, so don't be late. Always impressive is the camaraderie of good friends. Please invite Vets who don't receive this message. If there are transportation difficulties, call Amy Beck by 4 June 2014, 508 497-9730.

The Photo Gallery has 509 "poses" which are a result of a steady growth in our town-wide asset that everyone enjoys. Please maintain the momentum by locating an image of anyone who has lived in town and worn a military uniform www.hcam.tv/series/veterans/slideshow.shtml . Jim Cozzens has segmented the photos by branch of service. Each branch is alphabetized allowing an easier way to locate specific persons. Enjoy the new format.

Veterans Remember shows are available 24/7 at www.hcam.tv/veteransremember . Let us know of prospective guests. Visit the List of Links: www.hcam.tv/vets-links, and see a wide variety of veterans activities in Hopkinton.

The free-breakfast quiz is a double-header. All who are at the breakfast will be able to earn a fully-paid meal by correctly answering both quiz questions. Must attend! Who was the first ML shortstop to hit 50 doubles; and, what Hall of Fame catcher participated in D-Day from an LST, and earned a Purple Heart?

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.
