Bellevue Berry Farm: First Responders Day celebrated during the weekend
BELLEVUE, Nebraska — On Sunday afternoon, first responders from all around the metropolitan area gathered at Bellevue Berry Farm for a special event to express gratitude for the service they have provided to the community.
It was the goal of the event, which was organized by the First Responders Foundation, to provide first responders and their families with a day filled with enjoyable and relaxing activities as well as a lunch at no cost.
If we could respect them on that, and that alone, it would mean a lot to them, said Jason Workman with the First Responders Foundation. “In today’s culture, we know law enforcement has taken a big hit. Just a lot of hurt in those communities and the world in general,” Workman said. “But you know what, at the end of the day, you call 9-11, they’re coming for you and coming to help you and save you or your loved ones.”
The mission of the First Responders Foundation is to pay tribute to all members of the first responder community, as well as veterans and their families.
Throughout the course of the year, they host a number of different services and activities.
