Los Alamos County has a lot of attributes other communities do not have. One of the great traits Los Alamos displays is the support for the local police and fire departments.
Each year, the members of the community cook a great meal to demonstrate their appreciation for the members of these departments. This past holiday season, members of the community outdid themselves once again by hosting a dinner at the Methodist Church in December.
Members of the police and fire departments brought their families and enjoyed the great service. Everyone present shared some laughs, good food, and cherished the time together.
Members gathered together for a photograph as a way to remember the night, took homemade cookies to snack on later, volunteers made ornaments to decorate the member’s trees and some members won themed prizes.
“I know I speak for all who attended in expressing sincere gratitude to the community members who volunteer to put on this event every year,” Sgt. Daniel Roberts said. “We all are very fortunate to serve in a community that has great respect their public service officers. With so much negativity in the world and in the news, we sometimes forget to ‘hunt the good stuff’, however within Los Alamos, the good stuff is always easy to find.”
