West Texas Rehab luncheon in Miles

The Donor Relations Team from West Texas Rehab recently held a luncheon at The Depot at Top Tier in Miles. The lunch consisted of grilled burgers, french fries and condiments. The beef was provided by Bill Belew of B & M Belew Farms.

The parking lot at The Depot was packed with vehicles, so much so that they had to start parking on both sides of the building. Donnie and Danelle Schwertner and the Miles Lions Club hosted the event at The Depot. The Schwertners also own Top Tier Grain & Feed.

The Donor Relations team invited the high school seniors as well as the general public.

Donnie spoke about his link to West Texas Rehab, "My mother worked there for 34 years. It's a special place. The turnout for this lunch is great."

West Texas Rehab and the Miles Lions Club invited the Miles High School seniors to the hamburger luncheon held at Top Tier.

If you didn't want to dine at one of the beautiful picnic tables under the awning of The Depot, you could get a to-go plate. Approximately 100 people attended the event. Old friends and new friends shared laughs and stories throughout the lunch.

West Texas Rehab's Donor Relations team will help local businesses host events such as the one at The Depot. You can find out more information about the team by going to the website, westtexasrehabl.org.
