Occasional gunfire from the nearby shooting range could be heard in the early moments of a celebration hosted at the Roberts Park amphitheater on Thursday evening.

That didn’t bother those being honored at the event, however. In fact, the shots could have been considered a salute in some way, and a well-deserved one at that.
