LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -The Great Plains Coliseum in Lawton is serving as the staging area for power company crews who have been working to restore power to the area.

As a thank you, they're also getting ready to host a massive dinner for about 250 of the workers.

Great Plains Coliseum workers are preparing a Mexican feast that will be served from 7-9 p.m.

Ellen Fisher, the catering manager, says when they found out they were asked to serve breakfast and dinner to the linemen working in the area, soldiers from Fort Sill and Starbucks employees volunteered to help out. They’ve had so many people volunteer that they had to start turning people away.

Many of the volunteers are or were without power, and they say this way to give back to the men and women working to get the lights turned back on.

They started feeding linemen, electricians, tree trimmers and police Tuesday.
