Church to serve lunch to first responders
For most, Sept. 11, 2001, is a day remembered vividly. Although people my age were in the third grade at the time, the vision of me walking in my classroom, seeing the Twin Towers suffocating with smoke on the TV and my teacher with her face in her hands, sobbing is a moment I'll never forget.
The heroes of that day were the first responders firefighters, policemen, paramedics, soldiers, veterans, good samaritans and so on. For the last four years, Cameron Baptist Church has hosted a First Responders Community Luncheon to say "thank you" to area active and retired first responders and military personnel. This year's luncheon will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Fellowship Hall at Cameron Baptist Church, 2621 SW C. The luncheon is come and go and is free to active and retired first responders, service members and their guests. Ted's Cafe Escondido partnered with Cameron Baptist Church and will donate all the food.
