On Sept. 11, Cypress Cove Nudist Resort participated in the Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association’s (CFHLA) 15th annual Patriot Day Remembrance event, delivering free meals to local first responders.
According to CFHLA, the event is held in memory of Sept. 11, 2001, and to honor first responders who have gone above and beyond in the line of duty. CFHLA member businesses and resorts in Central Florida are encouraged to adopt a local fire or police station and provide the station with a delivered meal (breakfast or lunch) on Sept. 11.
“A meal is the least we can do for those who put their own lives before ours. More than an act of appreciation, it is a recognition of their daily sacrifice in exchange for our safety.”Jose Matos, Cypress Cove’s Director of Food and Beverage
This year, Cypress Cove adopted two nearby fire stations and a sheriff’s office. Meals were prepared by Cypress Cove’s Cheeks Bar and Grill.
“This is our third year participating in CFHLA’s 9/11 event,” says Cypress Cove’s Director of Food and Beverage Jose Matos. “A meal is the least we can do for those who put their own lives before ours. More than an act of appreciation, it is a recognition of their daily sacrifice in exchange for our safety.”
Cypress Cove public relations representative Stephanie Rutherford, who assisted Matos with the delivery of the meals, was humbled by the gratefulness of the first responders.
