Highland Lakes Heroes Gathering Offers Free Dinner and Comedy Show to Those Who Serve
MARBLE FALLS — Susan Weagant simply got tired of seeing the negativity. That’s why she organized the Hill Country Heroes gathering.
“I am a big fan of supporting our military, our troops, and our first responders,” she said. “You hear all the negativity. We want them to know a lot of people really are supporting you.
The event is 5:15 p.m.-8:45 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, at First Baptist Church, 901 La Ventana in Marble Falls.
Christian comedian Ken Davis will perform, and a dinner will be served.
Military, veterans, law enforcement, and first responders will each get a free ticket for themselves and a plus-one for ages 11 and older. Limited free child care for ages 10 and younger is available and must be set up in advance.
Go to www.honoringhillcountryheroes.com or call (512) 755-2800 to obtain tickets or child care. Those attending must register.
If there are any seats left on the night of the event, organizers will sell them at $25 each to supporters.
“It’s strictly for (military, law enforcement, and first responders) because spots are limited,” Weagant said. “We did’t want to take away free spots.”
Weagant said she is grateful to Camp Peniel and First Baptist Church for helping to ensure this event happened.
“Those are the places I serve at,” she said. “I wanted to have those two for accountability. First Baptist Church wants this to be their legacy and support this ministry.”
She and the other volunteers hope attendees will leave feeling appreciated and know they are recognized for what they do for Americans every day.
“The only thing that’s personal is my conviction,” she said. “I don’t have any family members who served or are first responders. I have friends who’ve been in the military. They’ve given a lot. We should support them and come along side of them and love on them and not disrespect them. They had a very hard job.”
