“One of our volunteers, Barbara Copeland, came up with the idea five years ago of honoring our emergency responders and showing them how much we appreciate them,” she said. “We will be providing breakfast for firefighters, emergency medical workers, 911 dispatchers police officers, sheriff’s deputies and emergency management workers.

“It gives us a chance to sit down and talk with them and tell them personally how much we appreciate the things that they do to keep us safe,” James-Brown said.
