Morningside of Gallatin held its annual Heroes Ice Cream Social last Friday afternoon. It was held in conjunction with the anniversary of 9-11 as a way for residents and staff at Morningside to thank and honor veterans and first responders for their service, dedication, and sacrifice." Residents waited just inside the door for first responders to arrive and greeted them with a gift bag, a handshake, and sometimes even a hug.
