Emergency, public safety responders honored by Mitchell Creek Marina
Mitchell Creek Marina and the sister companies here recently hosted an appreciation dinner to honor first responders, fire departments and law enforcement officers.
“The work our emergency personnel, fire departments and law enforcement people do sometimes goes unnoticed,” said Mitchell Creek owner April Patterson. “They give so much, often for very little pay, or no pay if they’re volunteers, and it’s important for all of us to let them know we appreciate the work they do.
“We’re grateful to them for things they have helped us with at our facility, but we’re just grateful for what they do for the public in general. This dinner was our way of showing them our gratitude for their sacrifice.”
A steak dinner was provided to those in attendance, along with door prizes.
