LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Wayne Farms in Laurel said a special thank you today to dozens of dedicated men and women who respond to the community's emergency calls. The company hosted its 9th annual appreciation luncheon at the Laurel Train Depot for police officers, firefighters, dispatchers and other first responders.

Local elected and emergency operations officials also said thank you to the honorees.

Wayne Farms management says its the least they can do for folks who sacrifice so much for their community.

"The community of emergency providers help our company provide services for our company, but also, more importantly, they provide services for 700 employees that we have and their families, so it's just our way of showing appreciation to these guys and gals for what they do every day," said Sam LeNarz, complex manager for Wayne Farms in Laurel.

About 50 first responders attended the luncheon.
