Pastor Steve McAlister expects to serve around 500 first responders and law enforcement officers at Westside Baptist Church at the end of the day Tuesday, Aug. 16.
“You can’t go wrong with fish,” he said. “With the events of the nation, we wanted to make sure our first responders and law enforcement officers know how much we appreciate them.”
The church’s Men’s Ministry loves to cook, so when it came time to decide on what to do, a fish fry was the logical option. The Men’s Ministry cooked for the disaster relief teams during the flood in March in Natchitoches Parish. They also tailgate at NSU and cook for church functions, baseball tournaments and the Fly Fishing Expo.
Natchitoches Power Sports and the City marshal sponsored the meal.
