LEXINGTON, OH - In remembrance of the events of 9-11, fourth graders from Lexington Central Elementary school prepared lunches and delivered them to local authorities.

The lunches were prepared on Tuesday morning. Fourth graders lined up in an assembly line to prepare different types of foods, from sandwiches to snacks. 

Each lunch bag was decorated by the students, along with attaching a thank you note. 

The lunches were delivered to 50 local firefighters, police and state highway patrol troopers. Departments that received these lunches included Richland County State Highway Patrol, Galion Police Department, Ontario Police Department, Ontario Fire Department, Lexington Police Department, and the Troy Township Rescue Squad. 

Parents helped drive each student to different departments throughout the morning hours.
