GREAT FALLS- Veterans got a little head start this afternoon, November 10th on a nice home-cooked Thanksgiving meal, thanks to folks helping out over at the Grace Home.
Local groups in our community spent yesterday afternoon at Central Catholic High School preparing all the food you see so these vets could all enjoy a free turkey lunch. There were all the classic Thanksgiving food items on their menu including stuffing, cranberry sauce, and of course pumpkin pie.
“It means a lot to us to be able to serve them and to be a part of making it a special day for them,” said Mike Mettam, a volunteer for the Thanksgiving meal at the Grace Home.
Mike said this isn’t the only opportunity vets have to enjoy a nice home cooked meal. In fact, the Vet Center does a potluck every month. Although this was their first Thanksgiving type luncheon, they are hoping to keep it at a tradition for years to come.
