Hometown heroes and first responders will be honored at a community breakfast on September 13 from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services will partner with Vets Helping Vets, USA to host the breakfast at The Holiday Inn (3600 SW 38th Avenue).

At last year’s inaugural breakfast, members of law enforcement and fire rescue services from six different counties were honored and several received special recognition. The group of about 300 guests included first responders, their families and a number of municipal and elected officials. Last year, over 25 first responders were recognized as their Hometown Heroes.
