The Wayne County Board of Supervisors, on Wednesday night, hosted an Appreciation event at Sodus Point Fire Hall for all the volunteers who worked so diligently and tirelessly during the months of flooding at Sodus Point and Huron.
The devastating flood event brought out “neighbors helping neighbors”, and countless Town, County and State emergency agencies, firefighters, and highway departments.
The impossible task of honoring them all was accomplished with local crowds and County officials expressing their thanks via Proclamations, Plaques, Awards…and cake.
Board of Supervisors Chairman Steve LeRoy, Supervisor of the Town of Sodus, opened the event with words of praise for all. He was aided by Supervisors on hand from Ontario, Rose, Galen, Huron, Arcadia, and County Fire Coordinator Rick Bond.
Joining in the praise of the responders and local volunteers were New York State Assemblyman Bob Oaks, and New York State Senator Pam Helming.
