Each year, thousands of people unite to commemorate Veterans Day, a holiday that honors all those who have served the country in war or peace. This year, the City of Mission is honoring local military heroes with a Veterans’ Appreciation BBQ Saturday, Nov. 7. The drive-thru event at Mission Event Center will feature a chicken plate with all the trimmings, while supplies last.
“We want to make sure our community recognizes the true meaning behind Veterans Day,” Mayor Dr. Armando O’Caña said. “We must honor the men and women who have sacrificed for our freedom. I wish we could host our second annual parade, but the safety of our community is first and foremost so we had to change things up this year to take the necessary coronavirus precautions.”
