SANATOGA PA – Hundreds of greater Pottstown area veterans from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces filled Sunnybrook Ballroom, 50 Sunnybrook Rd., Pottstown PA, on Saturday (Oct. 30, 2010) to enjoy a free annual Veterans Day breakfast in their honor hosted by Pennsylvania state Sen. John Rafferty.
Rafferty, who has conducted the event for several years with the assistance of state Rep. Tom Quigley and others, was all smiles and handshakes as veterans came up to him, said hello, and thanked him for their invitation. Several said they had attended the event every year since the breakfast began, and were “happy to be around for it again,” as one put it.
In addition to the food and musical entertainment, Rafferty presented Philadelphia Judge Seamus McCaffery as a guest speaker.
