Roscommon VFW Continues Breakfast Tradition Fundraiser

“They do care and support the veterans in this town.”

A Sunday morning tradition is still going strong in Roscommon.

For more than 20 years the Roscommon VFW has been hosting a country breakfast on the second Sunday of the month.

And all the profits go back into the community.

It helps fund post activities, including burials, ceremonies and scholarships for local high school students

The post commander says they typically serve more than 100 people at every breakfast.

And the post needs about 16 volunteers to pull it off.

Commander David Luck says it’s important to keep up the tradition to show Northern Michigan veterans they are appreciated.

“We have quite a few people Vietnam era that they didn’t get the best welcome when they came back. So this is something that we’ve been giving back and showing that the veterans are still here. And were still giving to give back to the community,” Luck said.

The next breakfast is December 8 from 8 a.m. until noon.
