To honor and remember 9/11, Mayor Karl Dean's Impact Nashville is organizing volunteer projects and special events for Nashville's Fire Fighters Appreciation Day, celebrated on Saturday, September 10.One of these is the "Cards of Bravery" project, which encourages youth to write cards for police officers and fire fighters in Nashville. In these cards, young people can outline what bravery means to them and thank the brave men and women who serve our community. Teachers & Parents: We ask you to encourage your children and your students to write their own "Cards of Bravery." This is a terrific opportunity for them to be involved in the Nashville's and the nation's efforts to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Our police officers and fire fighters will surely appreciate their kind words and support.
If you would like to participate, please bring your "Cards of Bravery" to any of the following locations by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 9.Mayor's Office100 Metro Courthouse, 37201Parks Department511 Oman Street, 37203Metro Schools Central Office2601 Bransford Avenue, 37204
