Early Settlers Luncheon

The parade and fireworks weren't the only events in Lubbock on the 4th of July. About 250 people attended the Early Settlers Luncheon.

The annual event started in 1926. Today, it celebrated the history of lubbock and the people who first came here with food, music, a video, and speakers.

Many guests attend the luncheon year after year. They enjoy a chance to catch up with old friends and celebrate their heritage here in Lubbock. This year's event was extra special because of the centennial birthday.

"Oh everything is just being done grander and grander. It's nice to be able to have it in this centennial year because there are many people who will be here today who are not far from that centennial part of Lubbock," said former director of Seniors are Special Patsy Whipple.
