The Fountain Public Safety Department is hosting a Military, Veteran and First Responder Cookout on Saturday, Sept. 11, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at Fire Station #1, located at 811 N. Santa Fe Ave.
Organizers said they want to thank the many military veterans in the community, especially those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. All military veterans and first responders are invited to join for the celebration of those who have made sacrifices for this country. The event also will commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
Anyone interested in joining for refreshments and great conversation is asked to RSVP on the city's Facebook event, if possible (www.facebook.com/cityoffountain). They may attend if that's not an option, however.
The city also has a drive-by appreciation event planned for this Friday.
