  • Remember Sept 11 2001

    On September 11, 2021 we remember the lives lost, heroes that served and a nation that responded to the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.  We also show gratitude to those that have and continue to serve our country both home and abroad in military and protective service in order to ensure the freedom and safety of our citizens. Please take a moment to remember and to thank those close to you that serve today. 

    Join with me to salute those in the Atkins Fire Department, First Responders,  Sheriff Department and Emergency Management in their vital roles today.
