Soulman’s Bar-B-Que Honors Local First Responders at Badges & BBQ Event

Rockwall, Royse City, Fate and Caddo Mills’ Finest Gathered Over a Great Meal


ROYSE CITY, Texas (September 7, 2018)—On September 5, 2018, for the fourth consecutive year, High Point Assembly of God hosted Badges & BBQ, a luncheon held the Wednesday before 9/11, to show the community’s appreciation for those who keep them safe: The First Responders of Rockwall, Royse City, Fate and Caddo Mills, Texas.

This year, Soulman’s Bar-B-Que had the privilege of bringing North Texas’ favorite bar-b-que to the brave men and women invited from the City of Fate Police and Fire Departments, the Caddo Mills Police and Fire departments, the Rockwall County Sheriff Department, the Royse City Police and Fire departments as well as the Mayor and City Leaders of Royse City, where Soulman’s Bar-B-Que has its corporate headquarters.

“It is always this time of year when we are reminded, as a community, of the sacrifices that are being made every day and night by those who take an oath to serve and protect. It is our honor to serve them in whatever way we can and to show our appreciation for their commitment to the tight-knit communities here in North Texas,” said Soulman’s CEO Brett Randle.


High Point Assembly of God, located at 880 S Erby Campbell Blvd in Royse City, began the Badges & BBQ luncheon in 2015 and has plans to continue the honored tradition year-after-year.
