On Sunday, May 24, firefighters at Fort Worth Fire Station #26 enjoyed a tasty, home-cooked dinner prepared for them by the Fort Worth B’nai B’rith Lodge.
Twenty-four lodge members and their families were joined by Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Mayor Pro Tem Jungas Jordan as they delivered meals to the firemen. The dinners included lasagna and meatballs, fresh green vegetables, salad, French bread and homemade cakes. The group prepared enough food to feed three dinner shifts of firefighters over three days.
Alex Nason, president of the B’nai B’rith Lodge, told the gathering “We very much appreciate the work our firefighters do every day of the year to protect our neighbors. This is just a small way we can show our gratitude.”
Mayor Price echoed Nason’s appreciation of the first responders and also thanked the B’nai B’rith Lodge for always working to improve the quality of life for Fort Worth citizens.
B’nai B’rith member Ebi Lavi presented Fire Captain Jake Barber with 30 reusable face masks. Member Marvin Beleck donated a large supply of homemade beef jerky.
“We appreciate the community support to all 24 firefighters at our station,” said Fire Captain Robert Broadwater. “Knowing that the community cares is very meaningful to all of us.”
In addition to Beleck, Lavi and Nason, volunteers included: Sophia Nason, Ben and Suzie Herman, Dan and LaJean Sturman, Foster and Marla Owen, Barry Schneider, Robert Chicotsky, Rich Hollander, Joe Mintz, Sheldon and Phyllis Levy, Evegny, Rina, Annie and Adam Ostrinsky, Michael and Polina Kuptsin and Brice and Etta Miller.
