Cappel VeteranBreakfast 11.04.23

PLAINFIELD – To celebrate and honor those who served our country, State Senator Meg Loughran Cappel will partner with Plainfield Township and Plainfield Park District to host a veterans breakfast event ahead of the Veterans Day holiday.

“Veterans deserve our thanks and recognition for putting their lives on hold in service of something greater than themselves,” said Loughran Cappel (D-Shorewood). “This event serves as a small token of appreciation for our local heroes, while helping them connect with others who have served and providing them an opportunity to learn more about programs and services that are available to assist them.”

The event will take place Saturday, Nov. 4 from 9-11 a.m. at the Plainfield Township Community Center, located at 15014 S. Des Plaines St. in Plainfield. Warm breakfast will be provided for attendees.

Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs Assistant Director Anthony Vaughn will be the headline speaker. Attendees will also hear from Dr. Natalie Coleman, a veteran military police officer in the Illinois Army National Guard. Vendors will be available to share community resources.

To accommodate all guests, registration is required for this event. Veterans can call Loughran Cappel’s office at 815-267-6119 or fill out a form here.
