Palestine PD, City honor veterans with annual Veterans Day Breakfast

PALESTINE, NOVEMBER 2, 2017 --   The Palestine Police Department and the City of Palestine will continue its annual tradition of honoring the city’s veterans with the annual Veterans Day Breakfast, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 9 at the Palestine Civic Center.

The Palestine Police Department, along with local veterans groups, is in its sixth year in honoring veterans with the breakfast. Local veterans groups include The Veterans Historic Education Center, Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary, and American Legion Auxiliary, Veterans Service Center, Vietnam Veterans of America and Associates Chapter 991, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3907, VFW Post 3907 Ladies Auxiliary.

“Many of us have family members and friends who or serving or have served in the military and it is our privilege to host this event each year and to say thank you to the service members who have answered the call to serve,” Community Liaison Bernadette Capron said.

“Our community partnerships and volunteers are what make this event a success every year. Walmart volunteers and Adam Harding come out in full force to help with the event. Whataburger is donating most of the food. Palestine firefighters and Police department personnel will help cook and prepare the food and many others help bring this event to life.

“The joy we get out of this event is seeing the smiles and the genuine appreciation for the event,” Capron said.

Veterans will be treated to eggs, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, fruit and all the fixings. Coffee, juice and water will also be available. During the breakfast, there will be ceremonies and speakers. The main speaker will be Chief Andy Harvey, and the Palestine High School Choir will be performing. The choir will be the guest of the Palestine Public Library.

The breakfast is free. For more information, contact Capron at 903-729-1635.
