September 16, 2019
FREDERICKSBURG- A tradition began three years ago in Fredericksburg to honor our veterans and first responders, this year many in the community are coming together to host the 4th Annual Veterans and First Responders Thanksgiving Dinner.
The Thanksgiving Dinner will take place in Fredericksburg on Monday November 25th at Bridge Church (Formerly Oak Hills Church). There will be one seating time this year, 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. “In these times, 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 830.998-3469.
“God bless this awesome district for consistently delivering for veterans and First Responders. We are doing this for our veterans, our police officers, our firefighters, EMS, and others as a genuine way to just say ‘THANKS’. This is an opportunity for all of us to step up to the plate and return the favor for those who have served,” said Representative Biedermann. “We need volunteers and donations now, and also want to ask folks to volunteer the day of and the day before.”
