Celebration of Freedomposted 7/10/2017 4:04:14 PM
Third City Christian Church, Grand Island, NE, recently hosted a Heartland Celebration of Freedom = to honor local people serving in the armed forces, as well as police officers and firefighters. It's the 15th year for the event, but there were changes this year, including community sponsorships and food trucks. More than 200 from the church volunteered for the event. Two local first responders who are battling cancer—a state trooper and a firefighter—were honored with a Freedom Award and given money to help with their medical needs.
