Night to meet local heroes

GREENVILLE — Local heroes will be honored Thursday, as DrugFree Greenville is hosting an autograph party for the distribution of this year’s set of “Hero Cards.”

The 100 cards — which feature personnel from the Greenville Police and Fire Departments, 911 dispatchers, American Medical Response/Hunt County EMS and the Air-Evac Lifeteam air ambulance service — are the centerpiece of DrugFree Greenville’s Hero Card Bingo program.

The autograph party is scheduled from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. Thursday inside the Greenville High School Indoor Athletic Facility, 3515 Lions Lair Road.

Under Hero Card Bingo, students in the Greenville Independent School District obtain Hero Cards. The children use their cards to fill bingo sheets, matching the first letter of the hero’s first or last name with a letter space on the sheet.

The classroom with the most “blackout” sheets filled at each grade level wins a free lunch with their heroes at the Fletcher Warren Civic Center.

Those wanting more information can call DrugFree Greenville at 903-454-4300.
