Thanks to Elburn Fire Chief Kelly Callaghan and the Elburn firefighters, you are the best.
Having just concluded the 10th anniversary of 9/11 dedication of my garden at 405 N. 2nd St., with the Elburn and Countryside Fire Department, I want to say a very special thank you to all of them and to all of the Explorers group and their advisors, who worked so hard to help make my garden presentable for the ceremony.
These young people show a dedication to duty, inspiring us all. Advisors Rob Stevens and Chris Garon, Explorer Group members Nichole Callaghan, Sabrina Sivert, Elise Fitchel, Anthony Parrilli, Kyle MacDonald, Derek Larsen, Tom Chidester, Aaron Fransz, Colin Deprez, Andrew Oliver, Jeremy Jorgenseon, and also a thank you to the Wasco Nursery for their very generous donation of mulch.
This garden is dedicated to all the firefighters who lost their lives at the Twin Towers on 9/11, and all the fallen firemen and women who have given their lives in the line of duty. We must never forget.
