Seasonal salute to first responders

By: Jim Erickson

Great Southern Bank manager Ross Chickering displays one of the many first responder patches placed on the tree.

The annual decorating of the First Responders Tree at the Great Southern Bank on Dougherty Ferry at Big Bend in West St. Louis County was held on Dec. 2.

Personnel from area fire and law enforcement agencies attended and placed patches of their respective organizations on the tree. As part of the effort, the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center held a blood drive during the event and food was collected for Circle Of Concern food pantry.

The food collection drive will continue at the bank, 2981 Dougherty Ferry Road, through Jan. 5.
