Noah Ogden is just happy to be alive and to show appreciation for the ambulance and fire personnel who helped save his life after his automobile crash on Route ZZ on the night of July 8, 2019, he prepared a meal for them and other area emergency responders.
“Without the quick response of the Gerald-Rosebud Fire Department and ambulance people, I wouldn’t be alive,” Ogden said this week.
On Aug. 17 he and friends prepared a meal of roast beef and all the fixings for a group of about 25 emergency services professionals and volunteers. He and friends Gabe Busch, Wendi Busch, Paul Buehrlen, Brian Onder, Nicole Vinson and Kathy Ziegler also prepared and sent a brisket meal and dessert to ambulance stations in Gerald, Owensville, and New Haven along with Owensville police.
This is the second year for the meal. His employers, John Paul and Nancy Quick, hosted the event at their restored Red Oak Valley facility south of Owensville.
Ogden, 38, of Owensville, said he wanted to share “a big thank you for all the community for supporting me” as he made plans to give something back “to all our first responders” in appreciation of the care he received.
Among those supporting this project Ogden planned are Shane and Amber Wilson at McDonald’s, the Bill Floyd family, Jason and Janice Gross, Pioneer Home Center, Douglas Stovall, Vandegriffe Construction, Brenda and Seth Criswell, Becky and Mackenzie Krull, Anthony and Sarah Reams, Christina and Brian Onder, Cory and Nicole Huff, Hudson Handyman Services, Purdy’s Stoney Hill Hall. Tamra and Chase Finley, Ken Zuegin’s Home Repair, Bill and Rae Smith, Tumble Bees Daycare, Paul Farris and Andrea Copeland of Bogey’s Sports Bar, Swag Derby Shop, Kristoffer, Alaina and Killian Carpenter, the Luecke family’s You Got Framed Construction, Deanna and Michael Woodward, Jerry Crocker and family, and Brittney Millikan and family.
“And a huge thanks to John Paul and Nancy Quick for letting me hold the event there at Red Oak Valley,” said Ogden.
