Harveyville church remembers firefighters, EMTs three years after tornado

091214-harveyville-tornado-Harveyville United Methodist Church the day after it was destroyed in a Feb. 28, 2012, tornado.

The Harveyville United Methodist Church will honor area firefighters and emergency medical personnel at its Sunday morning service on Feb. 22, followed by a community potluck dinner.

The church has been rebuilt since it was destroyed during a tornado that hit the Wabaunsee County town on Feb. 28, 2012.

The Feb. 22 service will start at 10 a.m. instead of the usual 9:30 a.m. Following the service at 11:30 a.m., emergency personnel will be the congregation’s guests at a potluck dinner in the church basement. Fried chicken and ham will be provided.

The community is invited to attend the service and bring a covered dish to the dinner to express thanks for the assistance offered, not only after the tornado but every day emergency personnel serve the community.

The evening before, Feb. 21, the church has scheduled a family fun night, also open to the community. Games will played and snacks will be served, beginning at 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Everyone is invited to bring the whole family and have an evening of fun and fellowship.

Harveyville United Methodist Church is at 371 Wabaunsee St., Harveyville, Kan.
