LINWOOD – The fifth annual Mainland Regional High School Veterans Day breakfast brought more than 60 veterans to the school Tuesday morning for a hearty breakfast, prepared by Heidi Hibbs and the Mainland kitchen staff.

English teacher Jo Carney, who is also a Blue Star mother, spearheaded the annual event.
