On March 26, 2014, the Veterans Breakfast Club hosted its 2nd Beaver County breakfast event at Seven Oaks Country Club in Beaver, Pennsylvania. The spacious banquet room was filled to capacity as over one hundred local veterans, family members, and friends came to celebrate the stories of those who served in uniform.
The event was hosted by VBC executive director Todd DePastino and recorded live by the Veteran Voices of Pittsburgh Oral History Initiative. The program features special guests WW II veteran Alex Yarow, Gold Star brother Fred Gregorich, author Manual Cavalho, and Holocaust survivor Judah Samet. The mission of the Veterans Breakfast Club is to create communities of listening around veterans and their stories. We accomplish this through public storytelling programs where veterans of all eras can share their memories and build camaraderie.
