JMRA Seeking Sponsors for Banquet
The Josh Mitchell Remembrance Association is seeking sponsors for their Third Annual First Responder Appreciation Banquet.
The banquet will be held this year on August 6, 2016 at the Reagan County Community Building starting at 5:30 p.m.
During the banquet we will be honoring our own hero as well as first responders who lost their lives in the line of duty in 2015.
The JMRA will honor surviving spouses and children by presenting them with an engraved brick that will be placed in the Josh Mitchell Memorial Park located at 900 N. Montana Avenue.
Laura McDonald will be the keynote speaker for the evening. Laura is the surviving spouse of DPS Trooper Jonathan McDonald EOW 11/15/10.
Dinner will be catered by Sugar Creek Grill and aramark.
The event also serves as an appreciation dinner for local law enforcement, fire departments and EMS personnel as well as many departments from across the state of Texas.
The JMRA banquet serves as the Associations annual fundraiser to help fund scholarships for deserving seniors. As of May 2016 the JMRA has given a total of $48,000 in scholarships. This has been made possible by the tremendous support and generosity from many in our local community as well as surrounding communities.
Lots of door prizes will be given away, as well as a silent auction that will be going on, throughout the evening. We are also selling $1 raffle tickets for prizes that will be raffled off during the event of which you need not be present to win.
