Mission to host third annual Veterans Day Fest

Mission, TX- This year, the City of Mission is once again honoring local military heroes with a Veterans’ Appreciation BBQ, Thursday Nov. 11. The drive-thru event at Mission Event Center will feature a chicken plate with all the trimmings, while supplies last.

“The City is proud to pay tribute to our men and women in the military by providing an annual Veterans Day Celebration,” Mayor Dr. Armando O’Caña said. “This civic celebration honors and celebrates the brave men, women, and families who have fought and sacrificed for our liberty and freedom.”

Veterans are urged to decorate their vehicles in red, white and blue to showcase their patriotism as they pick up their BBQ plates. Guests are also encouraged to visit the RGV State Veterans Cemetery over the holiday to place flowers or flags at the grave sites of loved ones.

The celebration recognizing military men and women will continue throughout November. The City of Mission is also offering a FREE round of golf throughout the month for Veterans at Shary Municipal Golf Course. A military ID is required for registration.

“This BBQ and a round of golf on us, is just a small token of gratitude,” Mayor O’Caña said. “We want our men and women in uniform, past, present, and future to know that we are forever grateful for their bravery, sacrifice and service.”
