Sand Spring to Hold First Responders Appreciation Service Sunday, Sept 11th

This coming Sunday is a special day in the heart and minds of many Americans.  It will mark the fifteenth anniversary of the tragic events that occurred on September 11th, 2001, with the deaths of many civilians and first responders.

As a way to give appreciation to all first responders, Pastor Mike Hamrick from Sand Spring Baptist Church will be holding a special first responders appreciation service to honor those who perished on that day as well as all local first responders who put their lives at risk everyday.  Being held during the 11am service at the church, Pastor Mike invited all local first responders including the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, Lawrenceburg Police Department, both county and city fire departments, coroner’s office, as well state police and fish and wildlife officers.

Wanting to do a first responders appreciation day at some point this year, Pastor Mike decided to choose September 11th as it fell on a Sunday. “We thought, what better day to have it than September 11th,” he said.

During the service, they will be holding a special recognition for each first responding organization. “We’re going to just recognize, have people stand that are apart of each one of those organizations, and then we got a special gift from the church to give them with a hope to be a reminder of that special day,” he said.  They will also be recognizing during the ceremony Officer Kenny Goodlett and Trooper Eric Chrisman, who both passed away last year.
