Sheriff Carl E. DuBois was incredibly surprised when members of the Bruderhof community, led by Ben Barth, unveiled a giant sign located at the crossroads of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Emergency Services Center.
The sign was designed as symbol of recognition for all essential workers who are working during this extraordinary crisis.
The sign is emblazoned in red, white and blue letters and states: HEROES WORK HERE, and is complete with the Orange County emblem.
The sign will be an inspiration to all those who work at the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Emergency Services Center and be a reminder that their community cares.
“The members of the Bruderhof Community always step up in times of crisis and have really outdone themselves here," said Brendan Casey, Commissioner of Emergency Services. "We are glad to have such wonderful friends who recognize the importance of our essential workers.”
District Attorney David M. Hoovler added: "The Bruderhof Community is part of the fabric of Orange County and their contribution to our communities are far and wide. Without fanfare they simply make our county a better place to live. The sign honoring county employees and emergency service workers is just one example of their outstanding contributions."
“I want to thank our valuable community partner, the Bruderhof Community, including Ben Barth who masterfully crafted this colorful recognition to all of the women and men who have sacrificed so much to continue to provide vital services for the residents of Orange County during this unprecedented global pandemic," Sheriff DuBois added.
