Fairbury City Museum Pays Tribute To First Responders, Fairbury NebraskaFairbury City Museum Pay Tribute To First Responders, Fairbury NebraskaFairbury City Museum Pays Tribute To First Responders

September 2011 – It was a beautiful sunny day this past Saturday afternoon as more than 75 visitors attended a special program at the Fairbury City Museum honoring those who served and lost their lives during the September 11th terrorist attacks, ten years ago.

Law enforcement, fire and medical response personnel, along with citizens, parents and children participated in a short program which included a prayer by former Police Chief Brooks Bryan, the singing of the National Anthem by Dick Schlichtman and a demonstration featuring Ringo the Drug Dog by handler, John Davis of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.

We hope that demonstrations like this will inspire kids to want to serve their community when they grow up.”

Refreshments were served as attendees toured the museum and viewed the many artifacts on display recalling various periods in Fairbury’s history.  For some it was their first trip to the museum. “This is my first time to the museum and I am just amazed by all the wonderful things in here,” said Kim Allen of Fairbury. “I would love to know more about Fairbury’s history and plan to spend more time here.”
