City workers each received a free meal, gift and thanks for their service Thursday, courtesy of the New Albany Garden Club.
As one of their community service projects, club members invited city employees in the light, gas and water, street, park and recreation department, and city hall to the community center for the complimentary meals.
“We just wanted to thank them for all they do and keeping us safe,” member Jolyn Cooke said. Civic improvement and community service chairman Angie Staten agreed, noting that those who provide these essential services may be overlooked or under appreciated.
Cook said that BNA Bank and Baptist Memorial Hospital helped sponsor the event with contributions.
