Flag ceremony to honor 9/11

by Jefferson Weaver on 3rd-September-2014

A flagpole in Riegelwood will be dedicated in a special ceremony Sept. 11.

The 10 a.m. memorial will be held behind the library, and will feature brief remarks, the National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Woodmen of the World chapter 1285 is donating the flagpole to the community, said member Betty Ann Smith.

“This is a time for our country to honor those who lost their lives on Sept.11, 2001,” Smith said. “With the flagpole being placed here, the entire community can enjoy it.”

Smith said organizers have contacted Acme-Delco-Riegelwood Fire and Rescue and invited the department to attend the memorial event, which is open to the public.
