DOBSON — Town officials here didn’t have to wait long to know if their first Veteran’s Day pancake breakfast would be a success.

The first veteran arrived at 6:55 at the Dobson Community Building for the breakfast scheduled to start at 7 a.m., followed by a steady flow right up until the end, according to Josh Smith, town manager.

“It was a great turnout,” said Smith, as the last of the veterans were leaving. “We had well over a hundred people. It was a good mix of veterans. We’re extremely happy.”

“We can build on this and do more next year, said Smith. “It’s a good way to give back to the veterans who have given so much to us.”
