NextGen to place flags on the historic courthouse lawn on Friday in honor of 9/11

This Saturday marks the 20th Anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Across the United States, cities,
towns, communities large and small and college campuses have been honoring the nearly 3,000 victims of this horrible tragedy by placing 3,000 flags in public spaces.

On Friday, September 10th, the Next Gen group, along with area Junior Chamber of Commerce students will place 1,000 flags on the historic courthouse lawn. The goal will be to have 3,000 flags next year and to continue with tradition.

Next Gen is a network of dynamic and diverse group with a passion to make a difference, a desire to build relationships, the energy to get involved in the community and retain young professional through increased opportunities and resources.

The September 11 attacks were an unimaginable tragedy. But we also saw, and continue to see, uncommon valor, service, courage and the unbreakable bond we Americans share.
The flags will be placed on the historic Courthouse lawn on Friday, September 10 at 5:30 and will remain there throughout the weekend.
