High School to Host Thank a Veteran Breakfast

Nov 09, 2011 No Comments by

Joseph Ambrose, an 86-year-old World War I veteran, attends the dedication day parade for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1982. He is holding the flag that covered the casket of his son, who was killed in Korea.

Londonderry High School’s new community service group, properly called “Pay It Forward”, will be hosting a special breakfast for the Veterans of Londonderry. The group first came together during this year’s Bras Across the River event in Manchester when sixteen high school students gave up their Saturday mornings to volunteer at the event.

After the success of the Bras event, the group, lead by High School Assistant Principal Katie Sullivan and team leader Kristen Malloy, decided to dedicate their time to other volunteer activities. Last month, they participated in a Moore Mart fundraiser, willingly providing a helping hand wherever needed. The Veterans breakfast is just another way they’ll help the community.

The breakfast will be hosted in the Londonderry High School Lobby on Thursday, November 10, 2011 from 8 until 10 AM. The breakfast is absolutely free to all Veterans who wish to stop by. Called Thank a Veteran, the breakfast was coordinated to coincide with Veteran’s Day, which is Friday, November 11, 2011.
