ANNUAL TRADITION UNITES THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY TO HONOR AND GIVE BACK TO THOSE WHO SUPPORT OUR HEALTH & FREEDOM
The Temple Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the 37th annual Military & First Responder Salute presented by the American Legion Post #133 and H-E-B on Tuesday, October 26, 2021. The drive-thru lunch to go event will take place from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm at the City of Temple Central Fire Station located at 201 N. Third Street in downtown Temple.
With continued uncertainty with large gatherings, this year’s drive-thru lunch to go event replaces the annual in-person luncheon at the Mayborn Convention Center.
“We are excited to continue our annual tradition of celebrating and saluting our Central Texas Military partners and veterans,” noted Rod Henry, Temple Chamber President. “Like the 2020 event, we are also incorporating First Responders into the recognition to show our gratitude for their efforts on the front lines of the pandemic.”
The Chamber, H-E-B, and volunteers will be preparing and serving lunch to go to our Central Texas Military Partners, the 13th ESC/Fort Hood, 1st Medical Brigade/Fort Hood, Garrison Command/Fort Hood, and the 278th Armored Cavalry/TxANG, local veterans, law enforcement, fire and rescue, EMS, and medical/health care professionals.
Chamber staff have coordinated pre-orders with partners, veteran organizations, food kitchens, and event sponsors with groups of 10 or more, and the community, including walk-ups, are also invited to drive-thru and grab lunch to go, while supplies last.
Through this event, the Chamber is uniting the business community to salute and honor those who have given so much.
