Alden Court honors first responders

Thanks to the folks at Alden Court Nursing and Rehab Center of Fairhaven for honoring local first responders, including New Bedford Police, at the First Responders Dedication Day held Thursday, Sept. 27.

First responders were treated to breakfast and then talked with residents about their work and the vehicles and equipment they use.

New Bedford Police Officers, past and present, were part of the festivities. Seated from left, former New Bedford Police Capt. Lionel “Rocky” Rochefort, and Marcel Ledoux, long-time officer at UMass-Dartmouth. Standing from left, former Deputy Chief Terry Gonsalves, Officer David Roy, Officer Bryan DosAnjos and Officer J.R. Ribeiro.
