FOR to Host Dinner for Soldiers
Posted on May 15th, 2016
Sargent, Texas will once again be hosting about 100 combat wounded soldiers/family members from several Warrior Transition Battalions this year. These soldiers will fish as their guests in the Tournament and the Sargent Community will host these soldiers/family members.
Friends of the River San Bernard is assisting the Sargent community with its 10th annual “Sargent Tournament of Heroes - Benefiting Patriots & Heroes Outdoors", by hosting a spaghetti dinner for the soldiers and their family members on Friday, June 10, 2016 at the VFW Post 2412 building, FM 457, on the way to Sargent.
Dinner preparations would involve cooking, setting up, serving, kitchen duty and kitchen cleanup. The menu will be spaghetti, salad and garlic bread for 300. The salad will be in bags, sauce and meatballs are is in bags, all it needs is heated – the only thing that will need to be cooked are the noodles and the bread. FOR volunteers need to arrive by 3:00 PM on Friday to have dinner ready to serve at 6:00 PM. The decorators will be there setting up the tables, too. The food should already be at the VFW building as most is being donated.
