MECOSTA COUNTY – The Mecosta Co. Genealogical Society will host a Show and Tell military event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, at 424 N. Fourth Avenue in Big Rapids, adjacent to Recycle.

The 14th Annual Veterans Tribute is a unique opportunity for Veterans to come and bring items, or view exhibits that other Veterans bring, to show the story of their time in service to our country.

There will be a questionnaire for veterans to sign and complete so that the Genealogical Society can gather information about their service to add to its military history of the men and women of Mecosta County. The group will also receive questionnaires for local military service groups.

Area residents can also complete a questionnaire for their ancestors who served in the military.

For more information, call Maureen Nelson at 231-250-5555 or drop by the office Saturday to help us honor our area veterans.
