Mt. Airy, Md.—Sunday, September 11, is the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Thousands of people died that day but many survived due to the efforts of policemen, firemen, paramedics, and medical personnel. The church family of Mt. Airy Baptist Church feels led to reach out to acknowledge and love those who continue to serve the community of Mt. Airy selflessly every day.RWB-Festival-c1f9bf3f6dd484f7402caf3e5226f2f5
