For seventeen years, El Dorado Adventist School in Placerville, Calif., has honored first responders in memory of 9-11-01. Students dress in red, white and blue for this event and the program includes: student honor guard raising the flag, a bugler playing taps, the ringing of a bell that symbolizes a fallen comrade, and the singing of God Bless America. This last September, the community guest speaker was Sheriff John D’Agostini of El Dorado County. Following the program, elementary students give hand written cards of gratitude and homemade treats to the First Responders.
