The Great Heart Ranch in Polly Peak provided a free breakfast for veterans and neighbors on Sunday, July 4.

Owner Michael Lindquist said that he wanted to thank the vets because he felt not enough gratitude was being expressed for soldiers and police in the country.

He also wanted a chance to meet and get to know his neighbors in the Polly Peak area.

The breakfast was set up under canopies and trees for the participants to enjoy. A full spread of coffee, juice, eggs, and fruit was served.

All agreed that the breakfast was a good meal and especially fresh tasting.

Howard Hebert of Abilene said he was very appreciative of the breakfast.

Hebert is an Army veteran who served in the 82nd Airborne Division.

Staying at the Flying L, Hebert made the most of his time in Bandera by enjoying the Pet Parade that morning before enjoying the free breakfast.

The Will Calixto family and friends also enjoyed the breakfastl.

Laughing and eating, the group made a morning of it by enjoying the cool morning weather.
