Humboldt Township residents today did their part to honor veterans, but in a slightly different fashion.
After the traditional commemoration service at the Township Hall, residents and veterans headed back inside for their first ever celebratory breakfast.
Event officials say this day is especially important for honoring those who gave everything for our country.
"Memorial Day is very special," says Humboldt Township supervisor Joe Derocha. "There's a lot of people here that have had...lost loved ones and they fought a good fight for others and...today is their day."
Over 100 participants were on hand to show support for the veterans.
