An organization hopes to honor our local heroes this September 11.
Scholarship Central at the Community Foundation is hosting a 9-11 event for EMS, firemen and police forces.
"We wanted to do something on 9-11 and we thought this was a great idea," said Scholarship Central’s Samantha Garber. "We all feel very passionate about it. We consider these men and women our heroes in the community, so we wanted to show a way to say thank-you."
While the event is still in the planning stages Garber said food will be involved. They are also looking for others to take part.
"If anyone would like to help sponsor the event they can contact us here at scholarship central," explained Garber.
The 9-11 event will take place at Park Central at Armco Park. A time is still to be determined.
