Father Son Event In Troup

Father's day is Sunday but some East Texas families didn't wait to celebrate.  An event in Troup was planned at the Troup High School Baseball Field but the rain moved it inside to the Municipal Library.

There were hamburgers, hot dogs, and lots of other food for the participants.  Congressman Louis Gohmert was the guest speaker. "Everybody appreciates their mother sometimes fathers have taken a backseat in our society," said Gohmert.  "Father's Day is a special thing. We need to rekindle that warmth that used to be there between the father and son for the betterment of America."

The event was sponsored by the Men of the Light. They say they plan on holding this event every father's day.
