Fire and Police Officials Honored on 9/11

The Barrington Noon Rotary Club held a special luncheon for the Barrington police officers and fire fighters at the Public Safety Building.

Fire and police officials in Barrington were honored today by community members and the Barrington Noon Rotary Club. 

The event was held in conjunction with the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. 

“Fire and police officials risk their personal safety every day on behalf of Barrington-area residents,” said Joe Kelsch Sr., president of the Noon Rotary Club. “Our club adheres to the Rotary motto of ‘Service above Self,’ which also characterizes these brave men and women who selflessly protect our communities. It is appropriate for us to honor our local heroes to coincide with this national commemoration.”

Lunch at the event was provided by Heinen's Fine Foods. Commemorative plaques were presented by Rotarians to Police Chief Jerry Libit, Fire Chief Jim Arie and village officials Karen Darch and Jeff Lawler.
