Lindale firefighter Joe Yeakley was severely injured fighting a house fire last month. Lindale and all of East Texas continues to pray for Joe's recovery and for his family. One way that East Texas can help with Joe's medical bills is attend a "Cheer Fest" for Joe and his family.

The Cheer Fest Benefit for Fireman Joe will take place in Lindale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at the East Cheer Athletics on Main Street.

The benefit will hold a silent auction and include tons of family fun with bounce houses, carnival games, pony rides, face painting, vendor booths, cotton candy and tons of food! There will also be a free lunch catered by Petty's.

It's free to attend, so bring the family and show support for this brave firefighter! For more information, call 903-705-2345.
