Tomball Rotary Club Hosts Benefit for Mel's Country Cafe
On April 17, locally famous Mel's Country Cafe suffered a devastating loss after an electrical fire broke out across the restaurant. Patrons were evacuated to safety and as emergency response personnel worked to extinguish the blaze, the extent of the damage became painfully apparent. But that's not where Mel's story ends. Although the restaurant has been closed for renovations and repairs, the fire marks the beginning of a new chapter, flooded with shows of support for this iconic establishment from fellow businesses, organizations and patrons across the tight-knit community of Tomball, including the Tomball Rotary Club.
"We love serving our community and are happy we could help one of our Tomball businesses in their time of need," said a representative with the Tomball Rotary Club.
While Mel's is still closed as it undergoes renovations and repairs from the fire, the restaurant has been keeping the public informed about construction progress. Although their reopening date has not yet been determined, one thing is clear. The love that patrons and fellow businesses have for Mel's reflects the restaurant's long-standing commitment to quality service that will keep Mel's on the map for many years to come.
