What we plan to do next weekend is give them an avenue to make a monetary con- tribution to this family while joining in a community event. We would like to thank the Lindbergh School District for all their efforts and support in establishing the fund to help the family. We would like to also thank the Local business leaders for stepping forward to get this BBQ started. Again, as we the first responders continue to support our Brother and his fam- ily, it is so encouraging to see the community support the Gapsch family and all their first responders in this difficult time.
