State Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, welcomes Rob Piercefield, president of the village of Mulliken, to the state Capitol. Piercefield also owns Swede’s Restaurant in Mulliken, which supplied sandwiches, soup and salad to the Michigan Senate in celebration of the passage of Jones’ first bill in the Senate, Senate Bill 19.
“I wanted to honor Rob Piercefield for all of his work in the community,” said Jones.
Piercefield supplies soup at his expense for a community meal in Grand Ledge, Portland, Sunfield and Mulliken. The community meals are for people who gather at area churches. Piercefield has served more than 32,000 meals.
