There is no charge for veterans or their guest, who will receive a full traditional breakfast. 

 “This is a wonderful, annual event to honor our Stratford veterans,” said Mayor Laura R.

I’m happy to also announce State Representative David Yaccarino will be joining us at this year’s breakfast. We look forward to hearing from him, as well as having the invocation by Reverend Bob Atkins, a veteran and pastor for VFW and the Baptist Church at Paradise Green. I thank them both for attending and for their service to our country.”
