Presbyterian Manor hosting veterans breakfast

Veterans, their spouses and widows are invited to Newton Presbyterian Manor for a complimentary pancake breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. Nov. 11 at Presbyterian Manor, 1200 E. Seventh, Newton.

“It’s an honor to host our area veterans, their spouses and widows each year,” said Marc Kessinger, executive director. “The morning is special, full of stories, expressions of thanks and hugs as we remember their sacrifice.”

The meal will be served come-and-go from 7 to 10 a.m. in the main dining room. Heart and Soul Hospice staff will also be pinning each veteran guest with a special pin for their service.
