South Hills Church hosted a wonderful BBQ honoring our Police & Firefighters at their Burbank Campus this past Sunday following their 10.45am Service. The BBQ was a culmination of their Love-The-818 campaign that included helping BUSD Teachers @ various school sites set-up their classrooms and providing Teacher lunches, helping BHC pack 100’s of free backpacks for kids who need them, BTAC undergarment drive, cleaning up Chandler Bikeway & serving at the LA Dream Center projects. In attendance were Burbank Mayor Jess Talamantes (ret. Fireman), his Mom & son Scott; Councilman Bob Frutos (ret. Police); BPD Police Chief Scott LaChasse & Dep. Chief Michael Albanese; and Police & Fire personnel from Orange Groove & Verdugo Fire Stations. It was an honor to serve the men & woman who keep us safe everyday! I also had the chance to chat to the Mayor about a number of topics including various aspects of Police & Fire Dept. operations (recruiting, sro’s), as well as the upcoming Airport Terminal vote. Thank You Pastor Dave Stewart and South Hills Burbank for spreading the love of Jesus throughout our community.
