BONHAM - The 2nd Annual "Day of Thanks" Police and Fire Appreciation Luncheon was a big success this past Saturday, December 17!

We -- the Pastor, Officers, and members of Bethlehem Baptist Church -- paused for a moment to recognize all the men and women of the Bonham Police Department, Bonham Fire Department and Fannin County Sheriff's Office. We served a nice warm meal and got to know them personally as we're building a bond between our church and our first responders.

We have to understand that this job isn't always easy. They put their lives on the line for us all and this event is just a way to tell them thank you. It's very important to build that relationship between departments and a church. They need to know we support them in this city.

A big "thanks" goes to everyone that played a big part in making
this luncheon come together. It's all about teamwork and community outreach. Merry Christmas to all the men and women in Fannin County who serve in public safety.
