A group of Ohio County churches are giving back to public servants who put their lives at risk for their community.
A dinner at Providence Baptist Church in Fordsville brought first responders, the Ohio County Sheriff’s Department, and some volunteer firefighters together.
Organizers say they want to give back to those who give so much of themselves to keep people safe and healthy.
Chief Danny Pogue of the Dundee Fire Department says, “The recognition, we don’t really get a whole lot. The only recognition we get is usually when something real bad is happening, so having a function like this, that means a lot.”
The event included gospel music, a guest speaker, and plaques given to each of the departments.
