fire department./// earlier today ? dozens of community members filled the parking lot of the hy?vee off 37th street in rochester for the 'touch a truck event'. oh no, oh no! you got em! kids got the chance to see city vehicles up close and personal... and thank those who put their lives on the line for us daily... much like those we remember today on the anniversary of the 9?11 terrorist attacks.xxx "it is a good day to celebrate those that made the ultimate sacrifice but i think a lot of those that did that that died 17 years ago today would want us to do this." all of the funds raised at todays event will go towards building a law enforcement memorial at soldiers field park near the veterans memorial. captain behrn's father in law died in the line of duty and believes this memorial will be a wonderful asset to the community.xxx "those are some strong amazing people and we need a place to honor those that went before us and those that stayed behind and were survivors." before tonight's meeting ? the future of one popular park was up in the air. we'll tell you what rochester's park board decided. plus ? a north iowa business is getting quite the award. how they earned the recognition ? and a visit from kim reynolds
