McKenzie County first responders are receiving some appreciation this week from the community.
This Tuesday, starting at 4:30 p.m., first responders and their families are invited to Kent Pelton Park for a day of fun.
The free event will kick off with a golf scramble followed by a dinner, and an award ceremony.
One of the organizers says this is their 17th year holding this event and it’s just a small token of thanks to those who risk their lives on the front lines.
“It’s a very positive thing and it’s good for morale and it’s good to have people gather around when they’re not out on a stressful situation,” Organizer Karolin Jappe said.
Jappe says there is no pre-registration for this event.
