SAN ANTONIO, TX - Members and school staff from the Palm Heights Community Church along with Councilmen David Medina held their first community event this weekend on the grounds of Palm Heights Neighborhood Center located on 1201 W. Malone St. Some local businesses also contributed to the event.
Aside from the public service, the purpose for the event was to raise awareness of the fact that the Palm Heights Baptist Church has been in the commuity for almost 100 years and is scheduled to undergo a name change to Palm Heights Community Church.
"We are hoping that this event is successful, so we can continue to hold such events at least quarterly." Said Karen Smith, member of the group. "We want to do this for the community, for all the parents and their children."
Sarah Smith stated, "We are also very interested in getting the youth involved."
Besides three different bands providing the entertainment, free hot dogs and refreshments were available for the public.
