Landon Batten, a firefighter at the Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department, ladles potatoes onto barbecue plates during the 56th annual Middlesex Firemen's Day on Saturday. The annual plate sale is a major fundraiser for the volunteer department. Participants found this year's observance especially significant because it was held on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, when many firefighters lost their lives saving people from the collapsed World Trade Center in New York City.
