Thomasville-- Police officers, paramedics, firefighters, and sheriff's deputies were treated to a catered lunch Friday.  It's the 3rd year for the First Responder's luncheon put on by the Thomasville area board of realtors.

They say, as we remember the anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, it's their way of saying thank you.    "We make our living here in town and our first responders are one of the main reason that people locate here because they know we have a safe community to live in and if they need help they can get it quickly," said Pat McLeod, President of the Thomasville Area Board of Realtors.

More than 200 first responders attended the luncheon Friday afternoon.
