    Prior to the ceremony events at the VFW, the Elks Lodge served breakfast to not only veterans, but the public, as well. They did this last year and will do so again next year.
    At about 9:30 a.m., approximately 60 people trickled into the VFW. As the patrons took their seats, the pianist began playing a few bars of various patriotic songs. As he did so, the conversation faded to a slight murmur.
