The Expo will also honor our first responders during our first annual First Responders Lunch sponsored by Allstate-Thomas Walters. Our guest speaker is Staff Sergeant Timothy Payne. Payne grew up in Buffalo, N.Y., and graduated high school a month before 9/11. After the attacks on the World Trade Center, he joined the U.S. Army. During his 3rd combat deployment he was critically injured, resulting in the loss of both legs. Now as a retiree, he conducts himself as an Ambassador for disabled veterans. He travels and shares valuable lessons learned fighting in close combat, battlefield injuries and the process of recovery. Without giving to much away we are going to hear a story of Tim's survival.
The luncheon will take place prior to the Expo from 12:00 - 1:30 pm. Limited tickets are available to the public. To purchase tickets, click the "Register Now" button above.
