First Responder Appreciation


Saying the simple phrase "Thank You!" has so much more meaning now than it ever has especially to those who are on the front lines of the health crisis COVID-19.  

Our First Responders, in Butler County, are on those front lines who turn the challenges of COVID-19 in to opportunities, consider the weaknesses they may have as a motivation to improve, and polish their strengths into uniqueness!

Several Butler County businesses have graciously offered "heartfelt appreciation gestures" to our First Responders.  Below is the list of businesses for First Responders to reference during these unprecedented times.

Those businesses of Appreciation are as follows:
