The Elese Tomlin Community Center of Groveland hosted its first 9/11 Service Day on September 7th to honor the first responders and public service officers for their sacrifices made every day to keep our cities and our nation safe. Mayor Evelyn Wilson shared heartfelt words to the community and to the public service men and women and thanked each of them and their families for their daily service and sacrifice.
