9th Annual Pancake Breakfast and the 6th Annual Walk & Wag for Veterans

CLEGGOn Saturday November 10th, 2018, Operation Delta Dog will be holding their 6th Annual Walk & Wag for Veterans Fundraiser.

The event will be held from 10am to 3pm at Great Brook Farm State Park, 984 Lowell Street, Carlisle, Massachusetts. Operation Delta Dog is a nonprofit organization with a mission to rescue shelter dogs and train them to work as service dogs for disabled veterans who suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The dogs get the homes they need, and the veterans get the help they deserve! The event will host a silent auction, raffles, 50/50 raffle, balloon animals, the Yappy Hour Doggie Bar, Flying High Frisbee Dog demonstrations, plus food trucks, music and the scenic walk that everyone enjoys.

This year’s event holds a special place in our hearts as we will be walking in memory of Scott Clegg, who tragically passed away on May 30th of this year. Scott was a patriot and supporter of veterans; he spent much time advocating for their causes. He was known for his generous heart and spirited, principled positions on many local and national items.

This year at the Walk & Wag for Veterans, Scott’s wife Ann along with family and friends will be walking in his memory as part of “Team Scott Clegg”. In addition, the American Automobile Association (AAA) will be making a $5,000 donation to Operation Delta Dog in Scott’s name.

For eight years, Scott has been an integral part of Roger Twomey’s Annual Veterans Pancake Breakfast. Scott could be seen speaking with the many local veterans at the event and he was most notably tasked with manning the DJ station where he would play big band and patriotic music.

This year, the 9th annual breakfast will take place on Sunday, November 4th, 2018 from 8:30am to 11am at the Firefighter’s Relief’s In, One Market Street, Lawrence, Massachusetts. The event provides veterans an opportunity to enjoy a complimentary breakfast, while listening to patriotic music and socializing with friends, family and fellow veterans.

This event is open to the public, tickets are only $5 a person and veterans always eat free. Tickets for the breakfast are available at the door. This year the event will donate $1,000 to Operation Delta Dog in Scott’s name.

Please support your local veterans by attending these great events.
