Said Atria resident Leslie Hickman during the ceremony, “We want to thank these men and women from the bottom of our hearts for the courage and valor they display every day.”
Linehan read the names of the village officials in attendance and presented the departments plaques honoring their service to the community.
Resident Katherine Kottner said of the event, “It was fantastic. The Atria was well-prepared, the awards were beautiful and the town officials were treated beautifully. And who deserves it more than these people? It was great to see.”
Added fellow resident Ruth Liva, "It was nice to recognize and honor these officers from the town. They have a lot to do with our assistance here and they never ask for anything in return.”
Ambulance Corps Captain Kevin Hunt, First Assistant Fire Chief Bob O’Hanlon and Police Officer John Wynne accepted plaques for the departments.
