EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) - On Saturday The Rotary Club honored veterans who live in Easthampton.
This is the second year the Rotarians observed Veterans Day with a breakfast at the Easthampton American Legion Hall.
Past president of the rotary club, Tom Brown told 22News, it's a way of thanking the men and women who served their country.
"Last year was the first event, the rotary club of Easthampton decided to put on a breakfast to honor the veterans. We did it as close to veterans day as we could. I believe last year we were right on veterans day," said Brown.
The rotary club served breakfast to one hundred veterans. That's twice as many veterans as last year's inaugural event.
