The Jekyll Island Baptist Chapel holds a Bluegrass and Barbecue event every year during the month of September. This event is to show love and appreciation for the first responders of Jekyll Island — the firefighters, EMTs and state troopers. This year, the event was held on Sept. 6 and featured the Marshgrass Bluegrass Band. All of the first responders received a personal letter of gratitude from the Rev. Jim Crandall. Pictured are firefighters and EMTs Mickey Doyle, from left, Shannon Richter, the Rev. Jim Crandall, Danny Petty and Waylan Carter.
