The families of University Church of Christ want to show their appreciation to all area First Responders and they plan to do that with an incredible brisket lunch!

On Saturday, June 12, from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm, on the campus of University Church of Christ at 2045 East 70th Street in Shreveport, all police, fire and emergency medical services personnel are invited for this brisket lunch with all the trimmings and a heaping helping of gratitude, and it's FREE of charge!

It's just their way of saying "Thank You" for all these people have done and continue to do for our community.

When I spoke with one of the event organizers, Derrick Smith, he said, "We will be serving these folks lunch and will be delivering meals to stations and departments that cant get to us because they are on duty.  We will be giving out door prizes as well."

"The sweet lady that did this every year at our church died after a long fight with cancer recently and we wanted to continue it in her memory."

If you'd like more information about this amazing event, contact Ashley Dillard at University Church of Christ.  318-797-6333
