KATY (Covering Katy News) – The Katy area’s first responders and teachers are gong to get a sweet treat later this month.  First Service Credit Union is using a “Waffle Tour” to show appreciation to public servants.

August 24 has been designated National Waffle Day, the whole week of August 21-25 has been proclaimed Waffle Week in Katy.

“The Waffle Tour is a fun way for us to let these local heroes know how much we appreciate, value and respect their work,” said David Bleazard, President of First Service Credit Union. “We hope that this small but tasty gift will encourage them as they continue to serve the community.”

On August 23, Katy Mayor Charles Brawner will make a formal presentation at the City of Katy fire station.

The Waffle Tour will visit each police and fire station in the Katy area. At each stop, everyone on duty will be offered delicious, fresh-made waffles topped with a choice of syrup and powdered sugar or Nutella, bananas and sweet cream.

The Waffle Tour is First Service’s way of lifting up and encouraging those who put others’ lives before their own, as well as recognizing and thanking those who encourage, inspire and teach the children of Katy.

The Waffle Tour will get an early start with stops at Cinco Ranch Junior High and Cinco Ranch High School, where teachers and support staff will be served free waffles. First Service will visit these schools August 15 as the staff prepares for the start of the new school year.
