Larsen Jay bought lunch for the area’s first responders Saturday on the 10th anniversary of his near-fatal accident.

“After 12 surgeries and years of therapy, I live a healthy and productive life with a wonderful family,” Jay said. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to honor the hard-working people in our safety and health professions.”

He founded Random Acts of Flowers following his hospitalization. Now the Knoxville-based non-profit has chapters across the country.

Lunch was catered by Sweet P’s Barbecue and All Occasions. The event was at the downtown fire hall on Summit Hill Drive.
