On Monday, members of
the Jefferson Street Christian Church gathered together to prepare
sack lunches for the first responder organizations within the
community. The lunches featured a smoked brisket sandwich with meat
from Peggy's Place in Lincoln. The lunches were also accompanied to
local fire houses and law enforcement offices by large trays of
tasty homemade sweets.
Members of the group said that the reason they do this is to say
thank you to all those who serve our community. Remembering the
sacrifices made in New York and Washington D.C. on September 11th,
sixteen years ago, drives home the fact that first responders face
danger every day, every time they are called out, and yet they
answer those calls with only concern for those who need help.
