Honoring Aurora's Police, Fire Fighters & EMT's - Oct. 2016
A pancake feed was held to show appreciation to all police officers, firefighters and EMTs in the community. It was a way to show these people how much we at Grace Lutheran Church appreciate the fact that they daily give to all of us of their time, talents and expertise for our benefit. It was a fun project and seemed to be appreciated by everyone that participated in either preparing, serving or eating.
Thank You Volunteers!
