September 11 Memorial Flag Ceremony
Join us on Saturday, September 11 as we mark the twentieth anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attack by honoring the fallen victims with the annual Memorial Flag ceremony and display. Together we will place 3,000 flags on Weston Town Green, each flag representing one victim of the attacks. This valued tradition began in 2002 and has continued annually since then.
Participants should arrive to Town Green by 8:30 AM on Saturday, September 11. After a brief ceremony, the bell tower at First Parish Church will chime to signify the moment of first impact and thus, the the time for participants to start placing flags. Upon completion, Town green will have flags representing more than 2,000 American citizens, almost 400 people from other countries and more than 350 firefighters, paramedics and police officers.
The Town has hosted this event annually since the first anniversary in 2002.We are thankful to the many volunteers who have joined us over the years and especially to First Parish Church who plays such a critical role.
All Weston residents and members of the public are invited to join. For questions, please call the Recreation Department at 781-786-6260.
