Assemblyman Durso Hosts 2nd Annual Veterans’ Pancake Breakfast & Resource Fair

Assemblyman Michael Durso (Massapequa Park) recently hosted his 2nd Annual free veterans’ pancake breakfast and resource fair honoring area veterans and active military members for their service and sacrifice.

Along with a free breakfast, the event brought together numerous government agencies and local organizations that offer support and services to the veteran community including Nassau County Vet Center, Wounded Warrior Project, Long Island State Veterans Home, New York State Parks and Recreation, Suffolk County Veterans Service Agency, New York State Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Vets to Vollies, VetDogs, and so many more.

“It was a privilege to welcome veterans from the 9th Assembly district to our 2nd annual pancake and resource fair,” said New York State Assemblyman Michael Durso. “We owe our veterans much gratitude for their service and it was an honor to serve them breakfast while providing them with valuable information offered by over 25 vendors that took part in this event. I want to thank the American Legion Massapequa Post 1066 and all the vendors for helping make this event a huge success; and a special thank you to our veterans and active service members.”

“Our veterans are our true hometown heroes and we’re so proud to serve them breakfast while letting them know how thankful we are for their service,” said Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino. “I thank Assemblyman Durso for his leadership in the State Capital and partnership in the Town of Oyster Bay when it comes to serving those who served us.”
