Today is Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance, in memory of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Locally, first responders in our region will join together to honor those who died on 9/11/2001. The public has been invited to join local firefighters to climb the stairs of the Holston Valley Medical Center Parking Garage multiple times for a total of 110 flights in honor of those who died while trying to save others. The 16th Anniversary climb will get underway this morning at 9:00.
The Corporation For National and Community Service lists different ways you can be involved.
