Tifton Olive Garden General Manager Michele Cavenaugh explained that this year's event was held at the Leroy Rogers Senior Center to cater to up to 100 first responders, to thank them for their service to the community.

Tifton Fire Department Lieutenant Dale Tucker said his favorite part of the day was eating lunch with his co-workers. 

"It's special that people appreciate what we do in the community," said Tucker

Tucker said it's nice for the restaurant to think of them, especially when other people are with their families over holidays.
