9/11 Memorial Project

Posted on Aug 26 2016 - 4:05pm

It will be fifteen years since the tragedy of September 11, 2001. September 11 attacks killed 2,996 people and injured more than 6,000 others. These immediate deaths included 265 on the four planes, 2,606 in the World Trade Center and in the surrounding area, and 125 at the Pentagon. Cal Expo and the State Fair will be hosting a special event at Cal Expo to observe this day that changed the world. On Sunday, September 11, 2016, Boy Scouts have been asked to place almost 3,000 flags on the lawn in front of the Cal Expo entrance. Cal Expo will open the special 9/11 Exhibit at the Expo Center. Scouts have been asked to guide visitors to the special exhibit from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  We have been invited to assist with the placing of flags or helping recover the flags at the end of the day in front of Cal Expo. Scouts will start positioning flags at 6:45 AM.  Please wear your class A uniform. We will take a group photo at7:45 AM in front of Cal Expo.  If your unit would like to pay honor to the victims of 9/11 please join us at Cal Expo. Parking will be free.  Everyone is welcome to visit the 9/11 Exhibit.  Please RSVP at pack281.net
