Along with remembering the thousands of souls that lost their lives that day, we also take the opportunity to celebrate our freedoms that terrorists found so threatening and to celebrate the bonds that make our community strong. And most of all, to salute the firefighters, officers, emergency medical personnel and the men and women that serve in the armed forces to protect you and I from harm
There are many chances to give back and celebrate in the community on this day. The Veterans of Foreign Wars post 5290 is holding its first "Let’s Roll" motorcycle show at the Stone Mountain Harley store on Dogwood Drive from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Remington House will hold its third annual Hero’s Luncheon to honor public safety personnel such as firefighters, officers, deputies, EMTs. Conyers also brings back its Taste of Conyers festival 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in Olde Town Conyers, featuring restaurants from all over the city and county.
You can also give back by helping your neighbors with chores, visiting and spending time with the elderly, or helping to care of the families of deployed service men and women.
