IN-PERSON Veterans Breakfast Club Penn Hills, Beulah Presbyterian Church | Friday, November 17, 2023

Date: November 17, 2023
Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: Beulah Presbyterian Church (2500 McCrady Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15235)
All Events | In-Person Events


Our first Penn Hills breakfast was back in 2009, and it’s been a lively location ever since with an unusual number of World War II veterans still attending regularly. At our breakfast on September 8, Pine-Richland High School’s Air Force JROTC cadets presented the colors and did a flag-folding ceremony. They then presented the flag to the oldest veteran in attendance, 102-year-old Julia Parsons, who worked as a code breaker during WWII.

Join us in Penn Hills and meet veterans  of all eras, ages, and branches of service.

It’s a new location in 2023: Beulah Presbyterian Church (2500 McCrady Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15235) right off the Parkway in Churchill.

Instead of an early breakfast, we’re doing light refreshments–coffee and Danish–at no charge. The event begins at 10:00am with food service and socializing, and then we’ll start our program at 10:30am and continue the storytelling to 12:00pm noon.

As always, everyone is welcome, and you don’t need to be a veteran to attend.

RSVP by calling 412-623-9029 or emailing And let us know if you have any questions!

Please consider sponsoring this event!
