Appreciating first responders
Calvary United Methodist Church in Dillsburg recently held an appreciation dinner for all of the area first responders and their families. This was the project of the church’s Mission Committee, and was wholeheartedly endorsed by the leadership team of the church, as well as the congregation.
Invitations were sent to the fire departments of Dillsburg Borough, Monaghan Township, Franklin Township, Wellsville Borough, and Upper Allen Township, to the EMTs of all fire departments, and to the Carroll Township Police Department.
This was an opportunity for the congregation of Calvary to say thank you to all of the first responders who serve the community of Dillsburg. Comments from some of the first responders were that this was the first time anyone had done anything like this, and they were very appreciative of the evening.
Members of the congregation provided homemade coleslaw, meatloaf, scalloped potatoes, green beans, applesauce, and homemade desserts. The evening ended with an hour of entertainment by the Klinger-McFry Band, a local bluegrass gospel group.
