Rep. Lois Capps will host a breakfast for military veterans Thursday morning in Atascadero.
The Democratic congresswoman is organizing the free event to thank the veterans for their service and provide information about the resources available to them, according to a news release.
“This breakfast will be an opportunity to visit with veterans, hear their stories, and connect them with the health, education and other benefits they are entitled to,” Capps said in the news release.
Also scheduled to attend the breakfast are Atascadero Mayor Tom O’Malley and county Supervisor Debbie Arnold, as well as representatives from the Atascadero Elks Lodge, county Veterans Services, Housing Authority of the City of San Luis Obispo, San Luis Obispo Veterans Hall and Social Security Administration.

The breakfast will be held 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Atascadero Elks Lodge, 1516 El Camino Real.
