Charter Senior Living hosted its annual 9/11 Day of Remembrance & Ice Cream Social at the assisted living center last week.

All local emergency personnel and first responders were invited to stop by and enjoy Petite Perle Sno Balls and Bruster’s Ice Cream. Approximately 50 local heroes attended the event and visited with residents, staff and volunteers of the center.

Residents Dot McCauley and Kathryn Brown distributed special treats to the first responders. Everyone enjoyed food, fellowship and fall-like temperatures on the front porch. 

Stephanie Harville, Executive Director of Charter shares, “It’s such an honor to serve our local heroes on this significant day. We greatly appreciate them and all that they do to serve our community and our seniors. They consistently put their lives on the line and 9/11 is the perfect day to pause, give thanks and say think you to these heroes.”

Resident Dot McCauley states, “I just think it is absolutely wonderful to get to honor Gallatin’s first responders. They protect and serve us every day and their commitment is unfailing. What a privilege to get to shake their hands and give a little something back to them who give so much back to us.”
