FIRST RESPONDERS APPRECIATION DRIVE-THRU MEAL
On Tuesday, May 24th, we will say thank you to all the First Responders in Lucas County – EMTs, Firemen, Police, and Sheriff’s Deputies – by providing them and their families a drive-thru dinner at First Lutheran from 5-7 pm. They will have a choice of a steak or chicken sandwich or a hamburger, together with baked beans, potato salad, and a drink. It is our way of saying thank you for all that they do to protect and serve the people of Lucas County. The meal is free to all the First Responders and their families.
If you would like to help BBQ the meat, plate, or serve there is a sign-up sheet in the narthex on the table by the baptismal font. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
If you’d like to make a donation towards the cost of the meal, since the meal is free to the First Responders and their families, please give your gift either in an envelope marked “First Responder’s Meal” or so designate on the memo line of your check. Your gift can be placed in the offering plate, mailed to the church, or dropped off at the church office. It is with great thankfulness and joy we look forward to saying thank you to all the First Responders of Lucas County.
