On Thursday, May 8, the Charleroi Masonic Lodge #615 held a First Responders Recognition Dinner.
They honored all the men and women who serve our communities by putting their lives on the line every day. Representatives from the local fire, police and EMS departments were in attendance and, as a small token of appreciation, they were presented with a commemorative pin. After a presentation about the history of first responders, dinner was served.
