5th Annual Veterans Day Breakfast: Friday, November 10th

The Acton-Boxborough Regional High School's National Honor Society and the Rotary Club are hosting the fifth annual breakfast celebrating the service of veterans residing in Acton and Boxborough. In the past, this amazing occasion has been a success, allowing students to meet the heroes of the wars they studied, while giving veterans a chance to share their important stories. Last year, more than 300 veterans and their families were celebrated and served by more than 150 AB students. We are expecting an even greater turnout this year. 
In order to host this special event, we are asking families and businesses in the Acton-Boxborough community to consider sponsoring a table for the breakfast. A $50 donation will sponsor a table of ten veterans and will go a long way towards honoring the more than 900 invited servicemen and women. All donations will be greatly appreciated and honored with inclusion in the program and a public thank you during the ceremony. 
Please send checks of any amount to:
Mary-Price Maddox
36 Charter Road, Acton, MA  01720
We hope you will all take part in this new tradition!
