Jordan Adventists Host Tribute

January 01, 2003 | Shirley Bilbro

Adventists in Jordan, Mont., hosted a Sept. 11, 2002, service to honor the nation’s “Frontline Responders” and recognize those who serve locally.

Seventy-five people attended the service, nearly filling the local church.

The program honored the Garfield County emergency medical technicians (EMTs), the local fire department and search-and-rescue group, the sheriff’s department, and the work of Physician Dan Muniak, who could not participate because he was attending to the delivery of twins.

During the program, the name of each honoree was called, and those present came forward to be photographed. Each received a personalized plaque that reads, “This Award is given to...our front line responders, in recognition of their untiring service in Garfield County.”

During the program, local Adventist Dan Eddy and three members of the Assembly of God Church led guitar-accompanied singing.

Because of the large turnout, the group took refreshments in the Presbyterian Church basement, a larger facility graciously made available by Presbyterian members.
