Little Did They Know

13735622_1423828037644296_4649064554643206218_oSgt. Michael Smith, a Port Arthur native who attended the Police Academy in Dallas, and was a graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School and Lamar University, was killed in the line of duty on July 7. While traveling back to Southeast Texas after attending the funeral of Sgt. Michael Smith, a 28-year veteran of the Dallas Police Force was one of the five law enforcement officers killed at a peaceful Dallas protest by an ambush attack. Little did Rod Carroll and his fellow Deputies of the Jefferson County Sheriff Department know that when they stopped for dinner at a Snuffers Restaurant that this simple, seemingly routine stop would become such a kind and caring memorable time for the officers.

letterAccording to Rod when they walked into the restaurant in “uniform” and were being seated the Manager told them the restaurant would not accept their money and that their dinner was on her and her co-workers. All the Snuffers Restaurant staff thanked the Jefferson County officers for coming to Dallas to join the thousands of officers from across the county that lined up for the farewell service.

It goes without saying that life has lots of memorable moments because when the Jefferson County Sherriff staff came out of the restaurant to their patrol unit they found an attached note on the patrol unit windshield. A kind gesture to support our men and women in blue and our fire fighters that put their lives on the line to protect the citizen of this great nation must always be. “A little did they know.”

Lumberton ISD Gretchen Scoggins, Coordinator for Special Programs & Communications is inviting the members of the 100 Club of Southeast Texas and everyone to come out and take part and support the Lumberton Varsity Football Team vs. the PNG Football Team, on September 9th.


“This will be a big game for us and we are expecting a huge crowd on both the Raider side, as well as the PNG side.  And it’s such a great way for our Lumberton Independent School District to demonstrate support of our local law enforcement because the money we raise at this sporting event will go to the 100 Club.”  “As the Special Programs Contact, we are arranging for each of our Raider Student Organizations to each volunteer for different roles for the Varsity Football game, and the students will be creating their own activities for the event,” Gretchen concluded.

With Great Respect

100 Club NewsletterAs the news of one of the deadliest incidents for U.S. law enforcement since the September 11 attacks began to unfold regarding the murders of five Dallas police officers, our 100 Club of Southeast Texas Board member Jon Reaud, overwhelmed with concern over the reports coming out of Dallas about the Thursday July 7 loss of life, called the Club Secretary to release an immediate statement of respect to the families.

Beaumont, Texas | The 100 Club of Southeast Texas extends its heartfelt prayers to the families of the four Dallas Police Officers and one Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer killed, and the seven police officers wounded, in Thursday evening’s horrific event. Our organization was formed to support the spouse and dependent children of a Southeast Texas First Responder killed in the line of duty. Our hope is that our community comes together in support of our local officers who have lost members of their Family in Blue and remember that they, too, leave their homes and families every day to protect all of us.

With Great Respect,

The 100 Club of Southeast Texas

Ride For The Blue

100 Club Newesletter Ride BlueOrganizer and community advocate Sandra Womack, help to facilitate the “Ride for the Blue” on July 24, 2016. Hundreds of bike riders, car clubs, mustangs, and jeepers took the wheel all decked out in blue to ride and show their support for the men and women in Blue who put their life on the line each and every day to protect and serve the citizens of Southeast Texas. The Ride for the Blue began at the Jefferson County Courthouse where the participants were split into three groups which allowed one group to ride to Hardin County, one to Orange and the other in Jefferson County to stop to pray for those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Seeing all the citizens coming out from across the three counties was overwhelming. The amazing day ended as the riders rode back to the Beaumont Police Department for their last stop and the group collected hundreds of signatures for the fallen and more than six thousand dollars was raised from the event that would be split between the 100 Club of Southeast Texas and the Dallas Police Department.
