First responders honored at ‘Heroes Day’

Seven years ago, Jefferson City Tractor Supply employee Cindy Poe had an idea to show appreciation for Jefferson County First Responders. She invited local fire, police, and emergency medical technicians to display equipment in the parking lot so the public could meet and greet the first responders. Three years ago, her daughter Jennifer Poe developed “Heroes Fund.” This year when COVID-19 came, Poe decided to serve a free lunch for all Jefferson County Emergency First  Responders on Saturday, September 26 at the Rescue Squad Building. Above, New Market Police Chief Chuck Devotie gives a thumbs up for the free lunch he’s being served. – STEVEN LLOYD | THE STANDARD BANNER
