US military veterans are invited to a complimentary Veterans Tribute Breakfast buffet at the Flying Bridge Restaurant, 220 Scranton Avenue, Falmouth, on Monday, November 12, 2018. The federal observance date was purposefully selected to preclude any brush with sabbath day observances.
This invitation is reserved and limited to veterans of the US military branches of service (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard). Attending veterans may either include a spouse or add a personal assistant to their reservation. Doors open at 8:00am, breakfast buffet service begins at 8:30am. Vehicular traffic will be controlled by the Falmouth Police Department.
The breakfast will be hosted by Sam & Judy Lorusso, Bob & Val Zammito, Ron & Donna Bonvie, and Bill & Linda Zammer. Sponsors include Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank, Ziggy’s Auto Specialties, Shepley Wood Products, Heroes in Transition, and the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce.
The tribute organizer and emcee will once again be Falmouth resident and Army veteran, Jay Zavala. The Falmouth Chorale Chamber Singers, under the direction of John Yankee, will participate. An invocation will be offered by Reverend Nell Fields, Minister, Waquoit Congregational Church. Special Guest Speaker will be US Congressman William (Bill) Keating. The Keynote Speaker will be Brigadier General Anne Macdonald, Army, Retired. Ed Lambert, radio 95WXTK personality, is slated to conduct veteran interviews. Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank "Red Shirt Friday" volunteers will serve and assist veterans.
Reservations are required, due to capacity limitations and to ensure adequate service staffing. Attending veterans must reserve seating by calling the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce at 508-548-8500 no later than 4:00pm, Wednesday, November 7, 2018. Regrettably, reservations will be discontinued when the seating capacity limitation is reached.
