First responders have a dangerous, yet rewarding, job. Because of their sacrifice to the city, there will be a community-wide recognition event for all first responders at the Westfield High School volleyball game on Sept. 8 for the second year.

Those attending the game are asked to wear patriotic clothing. All first responders — police, fire, and EMTs — get in free to the game. They also will be called out by name between the junior varsity and varsity games. They will come down from the stands and be given a flower by a volleyball player. Also, something new this year, a pitch-in dinner will be hosted for the responders before the game.

“First responders have a very important, difficult and often dangerous job,” said Ron Sinicki, a parent volunteer. “This is a very simple way for the Westfield community to show their appreciation for our local heroes by showing up to say thank you. As an added bonus, they will also get to see some great Westfield volleyball.”

Sinicki said the event is not limited to only Westfield first responders. All local police and fire are welcome to the game. WHS is competing against Warren Central. The first game begins at 5:30 p.m. in the WHS gym.

“The public is encouraged to attend to honor these important individuals and to enjoy and exciting night of volleyball,” Sinicki said.
