Lauderdale County, Miss.
The officers of the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department were honored for their hard work.
The Community Clubs of Lauderdale County provided a lunch Tuesday for the people that work at the sheriff's department.
Macedonia Baptist Church also provided the desserts for the meal.
Joann Kimbrell of the Suqualena Community Club and vice-president of the Community Club Council, says the club members just wanted to thank the men and women of the sheriff's department for what they do for the community.
"They are unsung heroes. They do not get enough credit.," said Kimbrell. "They do not get enough recognition, and they keep us safe. And I appreciate that more than anybody ever knows."
Macedonia Baptist started this event with just cookies last year and it grew to a full meal this year.
