Boles ISD, Air Evac 67 of Greenville, American Medical Response, Cash Fire Department, West Tawakoni Patriot Guard, Hunt County Sheriff’s Department and a host of other first responders took part in a Patriot Day Observance at the Boles Football Field on Friday evening, September 11, 2015.  The observance was dedicated to first responders in the southern part of the county.

The first responders marched out of the tunnel Friday evening before the game and closed ranks on the field.  The Boles Athletic Director, Jeff Thomason, painted the Boles Logo red, white and blue on the 50-yard line.  The red, white, and blue helicopter from Greenville’s Air Evac 67 landed on the fifty yard line with the nose aligned on the logo.  A crew member, Shane Smith,  exited the aircraft and presented the colors to Sheriff Meeks.  Several first responders made short presentations during the ceremony.

Our first responders do an outstanding job for very little pay. We can help out by making donations to the fire departments that will race to your property should the worst happen.  Don’t forget to bring Gatorade and water during the heat of summer.  People that experienced the horror of that life changing event on 9-11 televised live in Hunt County will never forget where they were on that morning when America was attacked.

Kevin Kile with Air Evac Life Team says that yearly memberships are available for $65.00.  The membership covers everybody in the household when tragedy happens due to an accident or illness. Kevin can be reached at (254) 218-0930 should you desire more information.
