Benefit lunch for Nolanville Family set for Saturday

On Friday, March 17, Nolanville resident Phillip Lapinskas was struck by a vehicle. Further details of the incident have not yet been released, though Lapinskas succumbed to his injuries and died a few days later. Now, the Nolanville fire department is stepping in to raise money for his family, and to help cover some of his final expenses.

The Central Bell Fire station in Nolanville will be hosting a BBQ/fundraiser for the Lapinskas family, as he was the brother to two Bell County Dispatchers, and brother in law to a Temple police officer.

Fire fighters and other emergency personnel will hold the event this Saturday, March 25 at noon to provide a place for friends and family to gather, raise money and remember Lapinskas. According to a recent press release, Lapinskas had no insurance and leaves behind two young children, ages two and seven.

The lunch will take place at Central Bell Fire Rescue, 100 N Main Street in Nolanville. It will be open to the public, and the city is urging for anyone who can attend, to come out to show unity for the Lapinskas family.
