Last year, the First United Methodist Church’s Mission and Outreach Work Group under the leadership of Dennis and Susan Trumblee recognized how much the community needs to let police officers and firefighters know how important they are and how much they are appreciated for what they do.

As a result, the first Appreciation Dinner was organized for them in December 2007. A meal was served to all the firefighters and police officers who were able to attend. The menu included salmon, steak, baked potatoes and salad. Each of them also took home fresh homemade cookies.

This month, FUMC, the Emmaus Group, members from several other different churches, the LAHS Key Club and the LAHS Jazz Band are working to honor the Los Alamos police officers and firefighters with another Appreciation Dinner. All members of the Los Alamos Fire department and Police department are invited to come to First United Methodist Church from 5-8 p.m. Sunday.
