Come and get ’em!
That’s the message from Bryan Neal of Neal Funeral Home in Cleveland to the first responders who serve Liberty and San Jacinto counties regarding the 200 watermelons placed around the funeral home’s lawn Tuesday.
Neal drove to Grapeland, Texas, early Tuesday in order to deliver the watermelons to Liberty County. He said they are a gift to the first responders as a thank you for the public service they provide daily.
“I wanted to do this for the Fourth of July but I wasn’t able to get the watermelons then because there was a shortage,” Neal said.
The watermelons are gifts for the firefighters, EMS, city and county law enforcement and wrecker drivers in Liberty and San Jacinto counties.
If you are a first responder and want one of the melons, stop by Neal Funeral Home at 200 S. Washington Ave., Cleveland. The offer is good while supplies last.
