    Name: Buy A FirefightER Breakfast on 9/11 (actually on 9/8 this year)
    Date: September 8, 2019
    Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM PDT
    Event Description:
    This is how it works: The Chico and Oroville Optimist Clubs organize the community to remember 9/11 by honoring its local firefighters and emergency responders. The Firefighters/Emergency Responders of Butte County are invited to have breakfast purchased by the community and be honored on a Sunday close to September 11th at Logan’s Roadhouse Restaurant in Chico CA. When they arrive they are greeted, and their photos are taken next to their fire trucks. As they enter, they are announced, honored and given a souvenir ticket and entered in the raffle. They are seated at a centrally located table of honor, they are served their breakfast expeditiously and are free to leave as they finish or as duty calls. It is very exciting with fire trucks and firefighters arriving and departing throughout the morning. The firefighters generally put a couple of fire trucks and equipment on display in front of the restaurant and young and old alike have opportunities to interact with the firefighters as they display their gear. Folks from the community come and fill in the rest of the restaurant interacting with the firefighters. Local dignitaries, community leaders, table sponsors, community members are scheduled to speak for our community remembering 9/11 and honoring our firefighters in a program that runs continuously throughout the morning. Young people from the Chico and Oroville Boys and Girls Club, Leaders in Training Program serve breakfast to the attendees. Young musicians provide entertainment between speeches
