Veterans, service members, active duty and family are invited to come to the Home Game Tailgate this Friday before the Mena Bearcats take on the Nashville Scrappers. The VA Mena CBOC (Community-Based Outpatient Clinic) will host a tailgate party at 4 p.m. on Oct. 6 at their location, 300 Morrow St., next door to the post office.
The event is sponsored by Polk County CVET (Community Veterans Engagement Team), Pilgrim’s (formerly Pilgrim’s Pride) and Arkansas Elks.
If tailgaters proceed to Friday night’s game, they might notice the student section wearing pink to “Pink Out!” October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Students and some of the public will surely be wearing pink to show their support.
The No. 4 Bearcats and No. 5 Scrappers are both 0-1 in conference play. They should be relatively well-matched as the Bearcats are 3-2 overall and the Scrappers are 3-3.
