Roughly 500 people attended the United Goodyear Firefighters L4005 annual 9-11 Memorial Ceremony this morning at Fire Station No. #183. The annual event honored the fallen on the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks which took the lives of civilians, firefighters, police officers and military personnel in the largest domestic act of terrorism on American soil in modern history.
Fire Chief Luizzi, Mayor Georgia Lord, and council members Hohman and Pizzillo also send their thanks and appreciation to the people of Estrella.
The admins of Estrella Mountain Residents are sincerely grateful to the local businesses and caring residents who help us make it possible for our community to give to others. I am beyond humbled that, with relatively little organization, we can do so much good in the community. Thank you. ~jen

ALSO OF NOTE:
I was so impressed with their professionalism and knowledge. Very nice people and I'm hoping to learn more about this group. Explorers and the VIPS, Volunteers in Police Service, were all in attendance to lend a helping hand today!
If you missed the event, you really missed out on this educational opportunity. Residents were able to meet with fire personnel and check out fire trucks, the police department's Special Assignment Unit, meet Sparky, and watch the fire department demo a vehicle extrication.
We'll be sure to keep you posted on future community events!
