CLARKE COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) - The Clarke County Sheriff’s Department has been hosting Senior Appreciation Day since 2001. However, due to COVID, the sheriff‘s department wasn’t able to have the event for two years. There was a large turnout Saturday.

”This is a state-funded grant that we get to help provide them with certain devices and stuff like that for their home, for crime prevention or just home safety, stuff like that,” said Sheriff Todd Kemp. “So this is our one day to give back to them and we feed them, we entertain them with some Southern Gospel music. So, it’s just a good day for us.”

Sheriff Kemp stated that this particular event was bittersweet for him, as it will be the last one he hosts as sheriff of Clarke County before his retirement.
