September 16, 2019
NEW BRAUNFELS- A tradition began three years ago in Fredericksburg to honor our veterans and first responders. This year the Comal County community is coming together again to host the Veterans and First Responders Thanksgiving Dinner.
The Thanksgiving Dinner will take place in New Braunfels on Saturday November 23rd at Christ Presbyterian Church at 12 noon. Seating is limited to the Veteran or First Responder and one guest.
“Barbi and I are incredibly honored to co-host this great event for our local veterans and first responders,” said State Representative Kyle Biedermann. “It is especially important to thank our veterans and all of those who serve in uniform. As the son of a Retired Army Colonel and the father of two Navy Sailors, I know many of our men and women in uniform have sacrificed and contributed to make our community and our country great. We are excited to be a part of this dinner to say thank you and to honor these heroes and their families, who have sacrificed so much.”
This event is completely free of charge and orchestrated by volunteers. The dinner is expected to draw close to 300 veterans and first responders. Hundreds of local volunteers will be needed to make this an amazing event. If you’re a veteran or first responder and would like to attend, please RSVP by calling or texting 830.307.4877
