Coming up THIS THURSDAY!!! Police and Firefighter Appreciation Dinner!

The Annual Police and Firefighter Appreciation Dinner is coming up THIS week—Thursday, October 6 at Springdale Baptist Church!  What are YOU cooking?

The Oakhurst Citizens on Patrol / Oakhurst Neighborhood Association Police and Firefighter Appreciation Dinner is approaching its 30th year.  Oakhurst residents, led by event organizers from the Oakhurst COPs, prepare homemade food to contribute to a dinner which runs for all three shifts of the police and firefighters' workday.  Neighbors, police and fire chiefs, the mayor, our city council representative, and, of course, the police and firefighters of the North Division who serve the Oakhurst neighborhood come out for good food and fellowship.  It's one way the neighborhood says thank you to these valued public servants!

Will you join your Oakhurst neighbors THIS THURSDAY and plan to bring a side dish, vegetable, salad or dessert to add to the main course (Riscky's barbecue)?  Alternatively, you are welcome to contribute to the Oakhurst Citizens on Patrol!

We will also need volunteers to serve and help clean up during and after the dinner, as well as to take down and haul the equipment back to our home (very early in the morning).  If you are new to the neighborhood, this is an excellent way to make good friends and to meet your neighbors.

One reminder:  Please bring all your food in disposable containers, or be prepared to stay until your container is emptied.

Finally, if you bring a dish to the dinner hour, please stay and visit with the officers, as well as your friends and Oakhurst neighbors!
