The county's first responders received an annual "thank you" from the VFW on Monday.

The occasion, a banquet hosted by members of the Lee Marts Veterans of Foreign Wars Post and Auxiliary #3571, was held in conjunction with Loyalty Day, which is officially observed on May 1.

Receiving the Post and Auxiliary's thanks for their service keeping communities and people safe were Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee; Trooper Evan Hilling of the Colorado State Patrol; Officer Rdean Young of the Delta Police Department; Reuben (Slim) Farnsworth of the Delta County Ambulance District; Chaplain Timothy Bergstrom of the Delta Correctional Center; the members of the Delta Volunteer Fire Department; and the members of Delta County Search and Rescue.

In addition to the awards to first responders, two local students were awarded certificates and $100 stipends for their patriotic artwork. They were Jonathan Barrett, a senior at Vision Charter Academy and Nicole Weaver, a junior at Vision Charter Academy. Both attend class on the Delta campus.
