During this past weekend’s community Military Veterans’ Appreciation Breakfast at the Clinton Community Center, this month’s event sponsor Isotek presented a $500 donation to the Junior ROTC program at Anderson County High School.
Saturday’s breakfast, which is put on every month by members of the community to thank military veterans and their families, also included a presentation from officials with the organization Smoky Mountain Service Dogs, highlighting ways that service dogs can improve the lives of wounded veterans. The mission of the non-profit group is to “enhance the physical and psychological quality of life for wounded veterans by providing custom-trained mobility assistance service dogs at no cost to the veteran.”
Next month’s breakfast will be held on Saturday October 14th at the Clinton Community Center with the “Chow Line” opening at 8:30 am. October’s breakfast will be sponsored by Clinton American Legion Post 172.
