Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Edmonson County law enforcement officers were treated to a free lunch on Tuesday, July 2nd, at Sportsman's Grill, thanks to St. John's Thrift Store and Pantry.
Barbara Fitzhugh, organization volunteer, said it was a small price to pay in exchange for the services law enforcement provide here in Edmonson County.
"We did this to show our appreciation for all that the officers do for us since they work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year with little thanks," she said. "When the country did law enforcement day, we did not have anything for our people. This was just to say thanks for all they do."
Officers and staff members from the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Brownsville Police, and KY State Police were represented at the lunch.
"Mrs. Barbara and St. John's have repeatedly shown their support for our office and all of law enforcement," said Sheriff Shane Doyle. "With so many across the country making it difficult for law enforcement officers everywhere, it's a blessing to see this type of support in Edmonson County. We are truly grateful for the lunch provided by St. John's."
