At least 150 people are expected to turn out to honor local veterans and first responders at a special September 11th Breakfast.  It runs Tuesday from 8:30a to 10 at the Bend Elks Lodge.
 
Chuck Hemingway with Central Oregon Veterans Outreach, or COVO, says it'll be a time for locals to get together and remember 9-11. 
 
 "covo is coordinating and cooperating with cocoa to do a breakfast at the elks lodge at 8:30 first thing in the morning- especially for retired first responders and veterans we'd like  to honor them.
 
 Hemingway spoke to 1110 KBND news about the event.  He says first responders play a very important role in an emergency or terrorist attack.
 
"YOU HAVE TO THINK OF THOSE FIRST RESPONDERS WHO WENT UP THE STAIRS - TO THE 2 TOWERS IN NEW YORK AND THE FIRST RESPONDERS TO THE PENTAGON AND THE FIELD IN PENNSYLVANIA-  WHERE THE OTHER FLIGHT WENT DOWN - THEY TOOK NO HESITATION- TO DO WHAT WAS NEEDED TO SAVE LIVES."
 
All proceeds from the $5 breakfast will benefit the Central Oregon Council on Aging.  Jakes Diner is supplying food for the buffet.
