An estimated two hundred people attended the annual breakfast benefitting Door County veterans on Saturday morning. The Door County Veterans Service Council’s Armed Forced Day breakfast held on Armed Forces Day, the third Saturday of May, in the Corpus Christi gymnasium allows military members to reconnect with one another and the public with 100% of the ticket sales staying in the community to benefit local veterans. Scott McFarlane, Door County Veterans Service Officer, says people don’t always realize there are veterans in need in the community.
McFarlane wanted to thank all the volunteers who made the day possible as well as Econo Foods for donating the food and supporting veterans. Armed Forces Day was created in August 1949 to replace separate Army, Navy and Air Force Days.
