On Aug. 24, 2016, Lynchburg Nursing Center in Lynchburg, Tennessee, invited local first responders to a cookout.


Jimmy Dale, executive director, grilled up hamburgers and hot dogs, while Penny Burton, dietary manager, contributed homemade pies. Approximately 15 attendees from the local sheriff’s department, EMS and fire and rescue squad stopped by for lunch.


“It is an honor to recognize our first responders for their dedication and commitment to serving our community each and every day,” said Dale. “This cookout was a small token of Lynchburg Nursing Center’s appreciation for everything these men and women do for us.”
