Minden honors, celebrates first responders
A packed crowd joined the Greater Minden Chamber Tuesday evening to honor and celebrate the actions of local first responders at the 4th annual First Responders Appreciation event.
Held inside the Minden Recreation Center basketball court due to the threat of rain, the kid-friendly event featured several inflatable attractions, small putt-putt holes, and free cheeseburger dinners provided by the Wimberly Agency. The night was capped off by a fireworks display provided by Bistineau Blasters Fireworks.
Different kinds of emergency vehicles from various agencies were parked outside for children to explore and learn about, including a medi-vac helicopter. Of
