Lawry's Pasty Shop in Ishpeming received thanks and special recognition this holiday.
Wednesday morning Lawry's Pasty Shop received the AMVETS Department of Michigan Certificate of Appreciation Award for their service in support of local veterans.
The restaurant provides food to veterans who are being transported to the VA Medical Center in Iron Mountain from Marquette Township.
The pasty shop also provides pasties for an annual fundraiser held downstate for veterans.
Owner, Mike Lawry, feels it's important for him to give back to those who have helped to keep us safe.
"It feels great. We've been here a really long time and consider ourselves apart of the community for years and years and it's an honor" says Lawry.
