Salem County Freeholders to Host Emergency First Responder Appreciation Dinner

SALEM - The Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders will host the Second Annual Emergency First Responder Appreciation Dinner on Thursday, October 1st, at 6:30 p.m., at the Centerton Country Club.
“Our first responders in every discipline are the backbone of our emergency response services," said Ben Laury, Deputy Freeholder Director. "They are within reach during one’s greatest time of need. Gratitude is what comes to mind when we think of those who serve in this capacity and each and every emergency responder deserves this recognition for their dedicated service.”
There will be 175 free seats offered to the emergency first responders who RSVP. After those seats have been reserved, the remaining first responders and family member may attend by purchasing a ticket for $21. RSVP is required to attend.
The event is made possible through donations from corporate sponsors Atlantic City Electric, Mannington Mills, PSEG, and Chemours. The planning subcommittee is accepting door prize donations to be given out that evening as they recognize business owners and residents.
“We are honored to host the appreciation dinner for our emergency first responders," stated Julie Acton, Freeholder Director. These dedicated responders protect our residents, business owners, and those traveling through (the) county. We have the finest men and women who respond to emergencies without hesitation. They serve because it is their passion, and they have the heart of helping others.”
