Today two funeral homes joined together to remember first responders for what they do from day to day.
Ray Dupre, an organizer for the event, says that the First Responders Appreciation BBQ was a way for the two funeral homes to celebrate all that first responders do and their courage and dedication to going into dangerous situations.
Food was served to first responders in the Opelousas area. The group says they were happy to serve the men and women who keep the community safe.
“we actually work sometimes hand in hand with these guys. what they do for us can’t be put into words. they run toward the trouble, you know, where most of us run away from it. we appreciate them so much”
