SHELTON, Conn. -- As people gathered to remember those who served in a Veterans Day ceremony in Shelton last week, members of the local Daughters of the American Revolution chapter continued their tradition of serving hot coffee to those who in attendance.

After the ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park, people gathered at the Farmers' Market to have coffee and munchkins, which were donated by a local Dunkin' Donuts. The event was organized by the Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter.

Christy Lee Anderson Hendrie, the chapter's regent, said it is a way of supporting the veterans.

"Why do we do this? We want to support our veterans, both male and female, from all services," she said. The group has done it for seven years, and the members are proud to be a part of the day's events, she said.

She said the organization is also a partner in the commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War.
