VETERANS DAY PARADE: The Cass County Veterans Council will present the annual Veterans Day Parade Friday morning in downtown Logansport. Parade lineup begins at 9:30 a.m. A ceremony on 4th Street, outside the Cass County Government Building, will begin at 10 a.m., with Cass County Commissioners Jim Sailors and Ralph Anderson speaking. The parade will move up Broadway to the Logansport City Building where a ceremony is expected to begin around 11 a.m. with Logansport Mayor Dave Kitchell speaking. This year’s grand marshal is WWII Veteran Babe Gordon.
SCHOOL PROGRAMS: Several area schools are hosting Veterans Day programs and invite local veterans to attend. RSVPs are requested. You can find details on each event on CassCountyCalendar.com.
HONOR MEAL: Martin’s Super Markets will hold its seventh annual Veterans Day Honor Meal event at all 22 Martin’s locations. From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on November 11, any active, inactive or retired military veteran of any U.S. service branch is eligible to receive the free meal, available at any Martin’s Deli.
To receive an Honor Meal, a veteran, either retired, discharged or in active service in U.S. (Federal) armed forces units or National Guard units may be asked to show his or her Military Identification Card at the checkout, and the meal will be free. No purchase is required, nor does a valid Martin’s Advantage Card need to be presented to take advantage of the offer. Holder of military ID Cards issued to dependents and spouses of active or retired service members are not eligible for this offer. Those without ID will receive the free meal upon request.
This year’s Honor Meal will include: two pieces of Martin’s Deli Fried Chicken; a side of mashed potatoes; a side of cold salad; a roll; a hot or cold 16 oz. Deli beverage; a single serving milk; a serving ice cream; and a slice of Martin’s cake (cake while supplies last). Meals are available for eat-in. Minimal carry out packaging will be available due to the volume of meals expected to be served during the Honor Meal period. Stores that do not normally have eat-in Deli areas will set up special seating on Veterans Day to accommodate their Honor Meal guests.
Veterans are encouraged to enter in a free drawing at each store for the chance to win one of 44 $50 Martin’s gift cards, courtesy of Eckrich. Winners do not have to be present to win.
Martin’s Super Markets was founded in 1947 and currently has 22 stores in South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger, Elkhart, Goshen, Plymouth, Nappanee, Logansport and Warsaw, Indiana, and Niles, Stevensville and St. Joseph, Michigan.
