Bellevue’s senior residents to be honored at 9/11 breakfast

September 10, 2012 by  

The senior citizens of Bellevue are being invited to a breakfast in their honor tomorrow, September 11.

The event, which will see a fully catered breakfast provided, is held at Crossroads Park, as the National Day of Service is commemorated across the country.

The event, named ‘Honoring Our Elders: Celebrating Our National Day of Service and Remembrance’, starts at 8:00 am running through 10:00am. All local residents who are 60 years of age or older are invited to attended.

Likely to be a popular visit on such a momentous day, there are enough places for the first 200 people. Those taking part will have the opportunity to chat with local heroes from across Bellevue. Many of the town’s firefighters and police officers will also be attending for a relaxed conversation over a tasty meal.

There will also be entertainment laid on. Led by Ken Carson, the renowned game day host of the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders, it is sure to be an eventful morning.

There will also be a host of information booths offering useful advice, tips ,and free course for seniors. Attendees include the City of Bellevue Neighborhood Outreach program and Microsoft Bellevue Square.

Unsurprisingly, print companies in the area have been in demand for leaflet and flyer printing for the event. Many of these will go into the gift bags which are also being provided.

The event, during which Eques Hyatt Regency Bellevue will take care of the catering, will take place outdoors come rain and shine. There will be a moment’s silence at 8.46am in memory of those affected in the 9/11 terrorist attacks that took place 11 years ago tomorrow.
