Post Observes 10th Anniversary of 9/11

Post Observes 10th Anniversary of 9/11

The 10th anniversary of 9/11 was remembered by our Post by distributing American Flags and commemorative Poppies (a black ribbon attached to the poppy) at the Edmonds Classic Auto Show.  Unlike other Poppy distributions, we had no donation can as we simply wanted to remember the 2,977 victims of the terrorist attacks 10 years ago.  As we all know, life continues on as demonstrated by the many hundreds or perhaps thousands who attended the car show.  I am sure that everyone in attendance at the show realized the significance of the day, but our Post, in handing out the Poppies and flags, wanted to make sure they had something tangible to remember that we will never forget.  Thanks to the Post members who volunteered their time on a hot Sunday day to help the Post out on this project.  And particular thanks to Jr. Vice Ron Clyborne who happens to be the head of the Chamber of Commerce and secured a spot for us in the Chamber tent, which was located strategically at 5th and Main.
