Rotary Club #89 Learns about the Veterans Breakfast Club
August 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
With less than one-half of one-percent of our nation’s population serving in the military, it’s easy for most Americans to go through their daily lives without considering the special bonds, burdens, and benefits of military service. But our nation’s veterans are all around us, and each has a story to tell. All we need to do is ask.
Since 2008, the Veterans Breakfast Club (VBC) has gathered thousands of veterans together with their families, friends, and neighbors so that veterans can share their stories, and the community can learn from them. Their mission is “to create communities of listening around veterans and their stories so that this living history is never forgotten.” They believe that through their work, people will be educated, healed and inspired.
Each year, they hold over 60 storytelling events at over 30 locations throughout Western Pennsylvania. There are no membership dues or requirements and everyone is welcome to attend, including non-veterans.
