CoxHealth Hosting First Responders Lunch Friday in Branson

by Kaitlyn McConnell

In appreciation for their service, first responders from area counties are invited to a free barbecue lunch during CoxHealth’s fourth annual Salute to First Responders.

“First responders make a huge difference in both the health and safety of our community,” says Eric Clay, CoxHealth’s Public Safety director. “A barbecue lunch can’t adequately thank them for what they do every day, but we hope that this will be a small token of appreciation for the great service they provide.”

These events will take place in towns and cities where CoxHealth’s hospitals are located, starting with Cox Medical Center Branson this Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m..

No RSVP is required for lunch. The event includes barbecue chicken, bratwursts, hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream and more, as well as prize drawings. Carry-out will be available for those who are on-duty.
