9/11 Honoring Those Who Serve ...
Sunday 9/11/2016 – 6pm at the West Linn's Willamette Park
Located in Willamette neighborhood where The Tualatin River meets the Willamette river at 1100 12th Street, West Linn.
Please join us for a brief time of quiet honor, reflection, and remembrance in honor of the nearly 3,000 innocent people from over 70 countries who lost their lives on 9/11, the first responders at the three crash sites, the nearly 7,000 lost in the ensuing wars on terror, and to honor all our current first responders (police, fire, medical) & soldiers who continue to bravely serve us every day.
We extend aspecial invitation to soldiers, veterans, and all who put themselves in harm's way for us.
We return to Willamette Park this year after visiting the West Linn Police Station and TVF&R Station 58 the past couple of years. We will have a flag ceremony, some brief words and music, a ceremonial Fire Boat launch, ringing of the 5-5-5-5 bell, and a wreath toss into the river. The public is encouraged to bring a flower or two to toss into tth river. Fire engines, Ambulance, Police, and Sheriff vehicles will be on display afterwards for the kids.

Community 9/11 Yellow Ribbon Project
West A Street over I-205 (by the High School) ... starting Monday 9/5 at 9am
We're decorating the West A Street bridge where it crosses I-205 with yellow ribbons in honor of those who served & died on on 9/11, our current first responders, verterans, & our all of our troops.
Tens of thousands of cars drive under these bridges every day. Let them know you remember and that you care!
Please stop by anytime the week of 9/11 and tie a yellow ribbon on the fence. Bring your family, and remember as you tie 1, 10, 100, or more ribbons.
Help your children to be touched by recent history and to learn to honor & respect those who serve them today.
Ribbons will be supplied.
