Steven Eason first had an idea of all five civic organizations in Greenville providing a free lunch for Hunt County First Responders. The idea caught on like a wild, Hunt County grass fire. Ernie’s Barbecue catered the affair and citizen’s from all walks donated to the cause. Eason had a “Great Big Thank You for everybody that volunteered their time and resources to make the event a success.
The five organizations that sponsored the event were the Greenville Lions Club, the morning and noon Rotary Clubs, The Golden Kiwanis and the Kiwanis Noon Club. The Quinlan High School Choral and Glee Club provided musical interlude.
Fifteen tables provided plenty of room for first responders near and far in the county. Bill Smotherman, First Vice Governor of Lions International, North Texas District out of Coppell attended as well.
