MATTHEWS, N.C. - "We Will Never Forget..."
The terrorists attacks September 11, 2001 are once again being remembered by the Firefighter Steven Coakley Foundation with their annual Flags of Remembrance ceremony. Wilson was at Stumptown Park in Matthews today where he was helping volunteers place the flags in preparation for tomorrow's event. The location is new this year for the group, but the event is still as important as it has always been.
This Wednesday, September 11th beginning at 8:30am a reflective memorial service will be held and which will begin the events of the day. A bell will toll at 8:46, 9:03, 9:45, 10:05, 10:10 and 10:28 all prominent times during the day of the attack. There will also be ribbons and a replica of the Twin Towers to sign for sharing of thoughts. A steel beam from the World Trade Center will be on display.
The event is one that should not be missed. The memorial at Stumptown Park, 120 S. Trade Street in Matthews will be available to visit through Friday, September 13th.
The FF Steven Coakley Foundation was formed to honor Firefighter Steven Coakley, FDNY Engine 217 and those first responders who lost their lives on 9/11. To learn more about the FF Steven Coakley Foundation, go to their website listed below.
