9/11 Remember America

I don’t think you’ll find a more elaborate 9/11 observance in our area that day than the one being planned at Newfolden, Minnesota.

It is going to involve a 200 voice choir, band music, one hundred (or more) motorcyclists, an aerial fly-over, skydivers, Jumbotron images, the POW-MIA Freedom Flight hot air balloon and much, much more, as they say. People from seven surrounding counties have been working on the 10th anniversary event for a year. Organizers are hoping as many as four thousand people will gather that Sunday morning, September 11, 2011, for it.

The numbers tell only part of the story, though.  In a nutshell, the idea is to remember the past, honor those people who keep us safe and free and to unite for the future.  Organizers want the day to be especially memorable for young people.  I’m guessing it will be.
