May 10  |  First Responders Appreciation Events


During the Week of Service, many Go Beyond churches and organizations plan ways to thank our first responders for their service to the community. This year, we are encouraging you to schedule those events on Friday, May 10 (if possible) so that we can have a county-wide display of appreciation for these important servants.

Events can vary in size and scope, so consider ways that best work for you and allow your group can say "thank you!"


Here are some ideas to help you get started

  • Provide a meal
  • Write thank you notes
  • Offer to clean their facility
  • Host a thank you event
  • Join together with other churches/organizations in your area


For example, Lampeter area churches are hosting a pig roast on Friday, May 10 for first responders and their families in the Lampeter, Strasburg, and Willow Street areas. There's also an event being planned in the Millersville area as well.
