Palmyra hosts 9-11 luncheon

Posted: Updated:

The folks at Palmyra Medical Center want to make sure first responders are appreciated in the days following 9-11.

Monday, Palmyra staff invited Fire, Police, and EMS workers to a luncheon.

They delivered meals to those who couldn't make it.

One EMS Coordinator says the luncheon was a token of gratitude and was the least they could do for those who put their lives on the line every day.

"It actually tells them we are still thinking about them. A lot of times they think they're out of sight, out of mind until they're needed, but some ideas lets them know we are thinking about them and we do appreciate what they do every day and not just on the days we need them," said Jason Akins.

The menu included pork loin, baked beans, sweet potatoes fries, cake and ice cream.
