In appreciation for their service, area first responders are invited to a free barbecue lunch during CoxHealth's annual Salute to First Responders.
The salute is held in honor of local first responders, and in thanks for the work they do to keep the region safe. It is open to all first responders, and no RSVP is required.
Now in its sixth year, the event will look somewhat different than it has historically. Instead of dine-in, all lunches will be served to-go due to COVID-19. Each boxed lunch includes a hamburger and chicken sandwich, potato salad, baked beans, chips, cookie, and a drink.
The events are scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. where CoxHealth’s hospitals are located:
Cox Branson, Friday, July 30
Cox Barton County, Friday, Aug. 13
Cox North Hospital, Friday, Aug. 27
Cox Monett, Friday, Sept. 3
