HARRISBURG – State Rep. Greg Rothman (R-Cumberland) wants to show military veterans in the 87th Legislative District their sacrifices are appreciated. To do that, he’s inviting veterans and their families to join him for a free pancake breakfast on Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Good Hope Fire Station.

“Many of these men and women have eaten more than their fair share of MREs,” Rothman said, referring to the Meals Ready to Eat (MRE) military personnel often consume while serving overseas. “We figured a pancake breakfast was a unique way to show our appreciation. It’s an opportunity for our veterans to chow down and for us to say ‘thank you’ for their many sacrifices.”

There will be two seating times for veterans and their families. The first seating time will take place at 8 a.m. and the second will occur at 8:30 a.m.

Veterans must register to participate by calling Rothman’s district office at 717-975-2235. The registration deadline is Thursday, Oct. 12.

Good Hope Fire Station is located at 1200 Good Hope Road in Mechanicsburg.

“We hope people will help spread the word about this event,” Rothman said. “We want to show our appreciation to as many veterans as we can.”

Maj. Gen. Tony Carrelli, who currently serves as Pennsylvania adjutant general, will speak at the event.

Rothman plans to offer a special recognition to Vietnam War veterans as part of the overall program.

The 87th Legislative District is in Cumberland County and includes East Pennsboro Township, Hampden Township, Silver Spring Township and Camp Hill Borough.
