About 40 lodge members and guests joined about 25 first responders for the event, which included an appearance from a medical helicopter team and vehicles from police, fire and ambulance companies.
“The highlight was the MedEvac coming in and landing,” organizer Jesse Tamburino said. “The second highlight is the friendship and fellowship we get meeting these first responders.”
Tamburino said the event, which was held at the lodge on Crystal Cave Road in Richmond Township, was a fantastic time for everyone who attended.
There was a barbecue and a tour of the lodge as well as a recognition ceremony and gift for all first responders who attended.
“We just take this time to really thank these local heroes of ours, and we appreciate everything that they do for us,” Tamburino said.
