Fawn church to honor first responders Sunday


A Fawn church will honor first responders on Sunday.

Harvest Baptist Church will hold its fourth annual “First Responders Appreciation Day” at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, said Dominic Cardamone, administrative pastor.

The church first held the event in 2015. It’s focused on firefighters, police and paramedics.

They and their families are encouraged to attend, and the event is open to the public, too, Cardamone said.

Around 100 first responders and their families have attended in previous years.

“As a church, we are really thankful for the service and sacrifice of so many in our community who put their lives on the line for our safety, and we want to let them know we love them,” Cardamone said. “This special day will serve as an opportunity to honor and thank many first responders.”

First responders from Fawn, Harrison, Springdale, New Kensington, Arnold, Lower Burrell, and Washington Township have committed to attending, Cardamone said.

Harvest Baptist Church is at 224 Harvest Lane in Fawn.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
