Support sought for first responders appreciation event in Midland

It’s time to shower our first responders with the aloha spirit.

Back the Red and Blue in the 432 will have a “Luau theme” for its 8th Annual First Responders Appreciation Day on Saturday, May 11. The event, free to first responders and their families and open to the public, will take place at the American Legion Lynch Post #19 in Midland.

The family-friendly event will feature live music, raffles, games, and food. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department and Midland County NE Volunteer Fire Department. Several sponsorship opportunities are available (see below) and a silent auction and raffle will also raise money for the organizations.

This year, Back the Red and Blue in the 432 is excited to partner again with the American Legion Post 19’s Legionnaires as a National Security Pillar to also honor the Heroes of 9/11.
