Dripping Springs Chamber Ribbon Cutting; Chick-fil-A
The Dripping Springs High School JROTC Club provided a flag raising ceremony at the recent Chamber ribbon cutting ceremony welcoming the restaurant Chick-fil-A to Belterra Village. The flag ceremony was part of the JROTC club mission of community service.
“Our student leaders of the DSHS JROTC military club have held community service as a top priority since the beginning of the club in September 2017,” JROTC Sponsor, and DSHS Teacher, Lauren Milner said. “I am so proud of them and how hard they've worked to help our community this year. The club has logged dozens of hours of community service for Veterans' organizations such as the VFW, Honor Flight, Toys for Tots, and Wreaths Across America. Our students have also worked hard to learn valuable military traditions such as drill and ceremony and consider it an honor to be able to provide the Color Guard detail for today's event.”
The club’s teacher sponsor, Milner, is herself a U.S. Army Veteran and was recently selected as Teacher of the Year by VFW Post 2933. She went on to win the 5th District VFW level, and is now competing for VFW Teacher of the Year at the state level.
The new restaurant is located at 165 Hargraves Drive, Ste. L, Austin, TX (Belterra Village off 290 West). Store hours are Mon. through Sat. 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., closed Sundays. The restaurant operator is Thamson Nguyen.
