Appreciation Dinner Honors Local Firefighters And Police

Barranca Mesa Elementary teacher Cynthia Kuenzel serves Los Alamos Police Chief Dino Sgambellone, his wife Robyn and children Emily and Nick during Saturday’s annual Appreciation Dinner. More than 130 police officers, firefighters and their families were served. The First United Methodist Church and Bethlehem Lutheran Evangelical Church annually host an appreciation dinner during the Christmas Season. Because so many firefighters and police were working Saturday night, a special appreciation breakfast will be held Dec. 29 for personnel who missed the dinner. Photo by Gene Schmidt
