Calling All Cars

To honor our local fire, police, sheriff, and EMS/rescue units, more than 220 people were in attendance this past Sunday, April 12, at the Napoleon American Legion for our Hometown Heroes event. We work hand-in-hand with different emergency personnel who help us respond to a disaster every 19 hours. Fire, flood, or tornado, we can always find those flashing lights and sirens nearby, assisting families in need. We provide canteening services – that is, beverages and sandwiches – to these brave men and women, but this event gave us all a chance to really show how much we care.  Our 2014 celebrated heroes are:
