Southwestern Oklahoma State University's Kappa Epsilon pharmacy honor sorority and the Collegiate Activities Board are hosting a chili supper and program to honor all western Oklahoma veterans on Thursday, November 12, on the Weatherford campus.

The free event for area veterans is at 5 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom.

"We brainstormed 'joining forces' to honor all veterans and think this will be a win-win situation," said Heath Tieben, director of CAB.

The event will be a combination of the 10th annual Kappa Epsilon Chili Cook-off and the 5th annual Veteran's Day celebration at SWOSU.

Non-veteran students can buy tickets for $5 from any KE member or in the Dean of Students' Office.  All tickets at the door will be $8.

"What a great opportunity for us all to work together to honor our veterans," said Amy Brueggen, KE fundraising chair. "It is a total SWOSU student effort with the students doing all the cooking. There will be a patriotic art show from students at West Elementary School, a lively program, great food and much more."

All veterans and a guest will enjoy the evening compliments of the two student organizations. The veterans are asked to RSVP by calling the SWOSU Dean of Students Office at 580.774.3767 by November 10.
