Cash Express in Middlesboro will be honoring first responders in the area for the anniversary of 9/11. They will be presenting a poster board with a “thank you” and prayer along with a cake to the local armory, EMS, police and fire departments on Sept. 10.
“9/11 was a big day in our history and every year we are reminded of that tragic day,” said Middlesboro Cash Express manager Sonja Cox. “Our first responders don’t always get the praise they deserve for risking their lives for us.”
The public is invited to visit the Cash Express location in Middlesboro to sign their names to the boards in show of appreciation to the local first responders.
“Some anniversaries we celebrate, on others we reflect,” said CEO of Cash Express LLC Garry McNabb. “The 14th anniversary of the attack on America at the World Trade Center in New York is one of the times for reflection. This is a simple but meaningful way to say thank you first responders — we salute you.”
Cash Express shows their appreciation to these brave men and woman every year on the anniversary of 9/11. It differs from community to community and location to location, but any and all involved have the full support and encouragement of the company.
“We value the opportunity to refresh and rekindle our feelings for our first responders,” said McNabb. “One of our goals is to encourage others in the community to be involved as well.”
The presentations of the board and signatures and cakes will be made on Sept. 10 starting at 1 p.m. with the armory. They will continue on to the fire department and EMS at 1:30 p.m. and they will visit the police station at 2 p.m..
