22 years after the events of 9/11, members of McBride EMS once again silently march down mainstreet to honour the memories of those lost, and to help keep these memories alive. The march participants slowly made their way down Main Street to the train station where Fire Chief David Hruby said a few words and they held a moment of silence. The procession then made the return trip down Main Street to the fire hall. TGP owner Bobby Hurry asked that all the store staff come stand along the street as the procession passed by. “It is important to pay respect for those who passed away,” he said. “We can’t forget. If we don’t do thing like this, it may be forgotten. This is also a chance to show respect fo local EMS.” /ANDREA ARNOLD
McBride resident Robert Collins Jr. took the opportunity following the moment of silence in memory to shake hands with and thank each of the First Responders in attendance. “It is our civic duty to thank these people that serve,” he said. /ANDREA ARNOLD
