Veteran’s Appreciation Breakfast Sunday, Nov 9

Veterans eat free at a special breakfast held in their honor, this Sunday, November 9 at the Red Bluff Veterans Memorial Hall from 7:00 to 10:30 a.m.

“The event is a chance for the community to show their deeply held respect for veterans,” said Sarah Rider, Wink Fashion owner who coordinated this year’s event with her business partner Sophia Swarthout.

“It also offers middle school and high school students opportunities to serve and to connect with older veterans and to hear their stories.”

The Veteran’s Appreciation Breakfast got its start four years ago under the leadership of Irene Fuller. Each year, it brings together local business owners, students, and community members to serve veterans.

“It’s always a wonderful surprise to see the ways people step up and support the event, whether it’s through cash donations, flipping pancakes in the kitchen, serving coffee, playing the piano, donating linens, flowers and food, or scrubbing the pans,” said Rider.

“This is the type of event that makes us proud to be in Tehama County,” said Kate Grissom, Marketing Director of Rolling Hills Casino, which donated food for the event. “It truly is a community-wide tribute to those who risked their lives and made personal sacrifices to protect not just Americans, but citizens throughout the world.”

Other sponsors include Enjoy the Store, Wink Fashion, Red Bluff Chamber of Commerce, Plum Crazy, Moule’s Glass, 3 Generations, The Gold Exchange, Balloons & More, Red Bluff High School Floral Department, Lassen View Elementary School, The Closet on Main, and Cornerstone Bank.

The Veterans Appreciation Breakfast is free for all veterans and $6 for all others.
