ASHLAND, OH - For over 22 years, the Ashland County Prosecutor's Office has honored National Crime Victims' Rights Week with a Service Awards Banquet at Elks Lodge 1360. According to Ashland County Prosecuting Attorney Christopher Tunnell, the banquet is a time to recognize those in the Ashland community who help victims of crime through their various services.

"I think it's important to highlight that there are people who care," Tunnell said. "They're working hard to make life better for victims of crime. A lot of times, we can't prevent people from becoming victims, but what we do about it on the back side is important. It's good to recognize these folks, and I think it's good to publicize what we do so that those folks that end up in unfortunate circumstances know that there's hope and that things can get better and there are people who care about them."

The meal presented at the banquet was prepared by the members of Elks Lodge 1360, who brought each guest a plate full of mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken, and steamed vegetables.
