ZachNews was broadcasting live at the event as organizers welcomed everybody to the event.
City of Needles Mayor Edward T. Paget and San Bernardino County First District Supervisor Robert Lovingood spoke during the event, thanking everybody for coming out.
Some who attended the event appreciated the people who came out to offer services to their community and the people doing what they can locally to help the people.
But some who attended the event wished that more services were more close by to the community instead of being miles away, needing to travel either by personal vehicle or passenger train to get to the city to get those services not found locally.
Officials from both the City of Needles and County of San Bernardino say they’re listening to the community and are doing what they can to help address the needs of the community they service.
For now, we thank those services who are here locally for staying part of our community and helping to service the needs of our community.
