We have partnered with the Cassopolis VFW’s Ladies Auxiliary #10704 to serve a free Thanksgiving meal to local vets, their families and friends on Wednesday, Nov. 15 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The meal will be served at the VFW, 131 S. Broadway St., Cassopolis.

“We have the ability to celebrate so many things because our veterans put their lives on the line for our freedom,” said Patty Nowlin, vice president of corporate communications at MEC. “It’s our honor to thank our vets for their sacrifice with this special meal.”

MEC employees will deep-fry turkeys, bake hams, and prepare traditional Thanksgiving side dishes and desserts. They will also help serve meals and provide support to the Ladies Auxiliary throughout the event.

“We encourage those who have served to bring their loved ones and enjoy great homemade food and good company as we usher in this season of reflection and gratitude,” said Nowlin.

For those attending, donations are welcome but certainly not required.
