Pancakes in appreciation


The Hendricken community, led by teacher and coach Bill Johnston, who started the pancake breakfast for veterans three years ago, welcomed veterans to the school cafeteria Monday. Students manned the chow line while Jason Pariseau, a close friend of Johnston’s, worked the kitchen with a group of volunteers. Joining to hear and tell stories from their days in service are Rhode Island National Guard pilot Captain Christopher Valliere, Hendricken wrestling coach John Myers who served in the U.S. Army and Eugene Nadeau, who served in the Korean War. Nadeau, a member of the Warwick School Committee, said he rarely attends events for veterans, but came to the breakfast at the request of his grandson who is a Hendricken student.

Once again, Coach Johnston,and the students at Bishop Hendricken put on an excellent breakfast. The church service was beautiful as was the young man playing our National Anthem. What a great place.
