Picayune High School’s NJROTC will present the colors and Doug Lee is in charge of the evening’s music. The evening will be an opportunity for the community to show their appreciation to local fire fighters and policemen and women for their hard work, Parsons said.

“This is the business community’s way to say ‘thank you’ for their hard work and dedication,” Parsons said.
