The First Responders Appreciation Committee of Oak Ridge will present the Third Annual First Responders Appreciation Day on Saturday, October 7, in the parking lot of Swifty’s Atomic Bar and Grill in Oak Ridge. The event begins at 2 p.m., a press release said.
“This year’s event will be much larger than last year!” the press release said. “We will have a waterslide for the kids, free food provided by Sysco Foods, and music. We’ll also have booths featuring DotDotSmile; Handmade Wreaths; Honey Pots; The Mystic Orb jewelry; National Martial Arts; Outta the Attic; Paparazzi Jewelry; Plum Crazy Boutique; and SET Guns and Range.
“Most importantly, we will be honoring all local area first responders to include law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and emergency medical services personnel. We will read a roll call of the fallen police, firefighters, and EMS in 2017 and have a candlelight vigil to honor their memory.”
Speakers will include Oak Ridge City Council members Rick Chinn and Jim Dodson; Anderson County Circuit Court Clerk William Jones; Tennessee Representative John Ragan; Anderson County Mayor Terry Frank; and Lieutenant Governor Randy McNally.
Swifty’s Atomic Bar and Grill is at 119 South Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge.
