Mocha Lisa Coffeehouse, 2825 4 1/2 Mile Rd., along with Malicki’s Piggly Wiggly, 5201 Washington Ave., want to help you honor a veteran.

From May 24-26, they will be giving a free carnation for every drink purchased for you to place on the grave of a loved one. If you do not know a veteran, you can place the flower on any vet’s grave in the cemetery of your choice.  This is a great way to help us recognize our veterans on Memorial Day.
