Free breakfast will be served from 8:30-10, courtesy of Power Ventures. The hour-long program, scheduled to begin at 10:30, will feature Harry Popiel, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force who has worked to bring a new veterans memorial to Waseca County.

 
 

There will also be poetry, music and a posting of the colors by local honor guard groups. Bells will be rung by Terry Throndson and Lee Swendson, a WWII veteran who is celebrating his 103rd birthday on Veterans Day.

Also on Wednesday, local Hy-Vee stores and Perkins restaurants will offer service members and veterans free breakfast. Click here for more Veterans Day events in southeast Minnesota.
