Albany business honors first responders

September 11, 2007

Albany -- An Albany funeral home reached out to emergency responders on the anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks.

 Hall and Hall Funeral Home on South Mock Road provided lunch for emergency workers. Police, firefighters and paramedics were invited to the cook out as the funeral home's way of thanking them for their work.

 Funeral Assistant Robin Chaplin said "we as American's sometimes have too short a memory. We just want to be a blessing to them as they are to us, putting their life on the line for all the citizens of our community."

 Albany Fire Department Lt. Paul Golden said "A lot of people lost a lot of things on 9-11, and for them to remember us this way, it's really appreciated."

 Hall and Hall workers say more than 110 first responders came to the lunch, and they plan to make it an annual tribute to Albany's public safety workers.
