On Saturday members of the Pacifica American Legion Post 238 hosted its annual S.O.S. Breakfast from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Legion Hall at 555 Buel Avenue.
Members of the Pacifica police and fire departments, local community leaders and the public were invited to enjoy a traditional military-style breakfast, with “S.O.S.”, traditional chipped beef on toast, scrambled eggs, hash browns and Spam. Fresh pastry, fresh fruit and assorted fruit juices was also served for hearty civilian appetites. The breakfast was free to the public but a generous donation to help support outreach programs for area veterans and their families was encouraged
The Post’s annual Veteran’s Day Breakfast has attracted over 80 guests in recent years, filling the hall to near capacity.
The popular annual event pays tribute to all military veterans, past and present, and proved a perfect setting for many older and younger veterans to share their memories of prior service, over generous portions of hot, G.I.-style black coffee, apple pie, and chocolate chip ice cream.
The Legion's next event is on Nov. 17, a delicious family-style Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. The dinner is free to all members who have paid their 2013 Legion or Auxiliary membership dues and $12 per member for those who have not yet done so.
Head “Tom Turkey” and Post Commander Tom Sullivan will be preparing the birds. Enjoy mashed potatoes, stuffing, great side dishes and festive fall desserts.
The dinner will also feature a presentation by young high school age men and women who were selected to attend 2012 Boys and Girls State this year.
Volunteers are needed to help set up, cook and serve. For information contact Post Commander Tom Sullivan at 650-359-3285.
