Church feeds community heroes

September 8, 2004

Albany-- A church remembers the September 11th terrorist attacks on America, by honoring local police officers with lunch.

First United Methodist Church volunteers fed 250 officers from the Albany Police and Dougherty County Sheriff's Departments with a "Hero Appreciation Meal" to remember the first responders killed on 9-11, and to thank local law enforcement.

"Just to remind them that we realize their sacrifices for us help this to be the community we want to live in," said Associate Minister Jim Coleman.

 The church volunteers will feed the officers on all three shifts today. Last year Albany First Methodist served Albany firefighters a meal, and plan to honor more first -responders next year in rememberance of the 9-11 attacks.
