SALYERSVILLE - As September 11 passes, it is important to honor those who died on 9/11 and thank those first responders - police officers, firefighters and emergency medical service (EMS) technicians - who continue to protect our communities.
Every year since that tragic day in 2001, employees at Cash Express stores across Kentucky and Tennessee and throughout the nation have visited first responders in early September to make a simple yet thoughtful gesture - they have delivered cakes to police and fire stations.
This year on September 11, employees from the Cash Express store at Salyersville delivered cakes to Transtar EMS technicians at the EMS district office and the 911 dispatch facility, Middle Fork Fire Department, Magoffin County Rescue Squad, Salyersville Fire and City Police, Magoffin County Sheriff’s Department, and South Magoffin Fire. Cakes were also delivered on September 9 to District 3 Fire Department and North Magoffin Fire Department.
Small gestures can carry big messages. Cash Express is simply doing what many Americans feel on 9/11 - a sense of thanks and respect for first responders. The tragic events on 9/11 unfortunately reminded us that life can be too short, so we must say thanks and express gratitude when we can.
