State Rep. Greg Rothman (R-Cumberland) will host a free pancake breakfast for veterans and their families Oct. 14 at the Good Hope Fire Station.
“Many of these men and women have eaten more than their fair share of MREs,” Rothman said, referring to the Meals Ready to Eat military personnel often consume while serving overseas. “We figured a pancake breakfast was a unique way to show our appreciation. It’s an opportunity for our veterans to chow down and for us to say ‘thank you’ for their many sacrifices.”
There will be two seating times for veterans and their families — 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Veterans must register to participate by calling Rothman’s district office at 717-975-2235. The registration deadline is Oct. 12.
Good Hope Fire Station is at 1200 Good Hope Road in Mechanicsburg. Maj. Gen. Tony Carrelli, who serves as Pennsylvania adjutant general, will speak at the event. Rothman said he plans to offer a special recognition to Vietnam War veterans as part of the overall program.
