Smithfield American Legion Thanks First Responders

American Legion Post 132 and the American Legion Auxiliary in Smithfield honored local first responders on Thursday with a warm meal.

The Legion Post served the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office, Smithfield Police, EMS and Fire Department for lunch.

Smithfield Selma High ROTC cadets assisted with the event. Over 100 people attended.

Legion Post Commander Ernie Allsbrook called the event a big success and hopes it can become an annual event.

Local veterans are invited to attend meetings the second Thursday of each month at the American Legion Post 132 in Smithfield.
