Members from the Salvage Yard Biker Church and other participants drove by area fire and police departments on Saturday morning during their 9/11 Ride to Salute.

The appreciation tour visited 20 fire and police stations in Kankakee County in honor of first responders on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. More than 70 motorcycles and about 10 vehicles passed by waving to first responders throughout the county. The tour ended at Limestone Township Fire Protection District where Pastor Dave Diveley granted the station an honorary plaque that will be floated between the stations each year.
