Hurricane Evacuees Say Thank You To The Community

By  | 

An early Easter meal with a Louisiana feel was prepared at the Twin City Mission Community Café.

On Saturday, Deborah Miller and her family hosted an appreciation lunch. Miller says when she and her family came to the Brazos Valley after evacuating New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, the cafe provided them with meals.

She says through Bryan and College Station's hospitality her family felt love and support when they needed it most. As a way to repay the community that embraced her, Miller says she wanted to prepare a cajun themed lunch.

"We decided to come together and give back to the community, not just to say 'we love you' or 'thank you,' but to show 'we love you' and 'thank you,'" Miller said.

Close to 20 of Miller's family members and leaders and members of the House of Prayer Church in Hearne cooked and served the lunch. They were able to prepare enough food to feed about a hundred people.
