September 11 Memorial Flag Ceremony
Join us on Sunday, September 11 as we honor the fallen victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks 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.
Participants should arrive to Town Green by 8:30 AM on Sunday, September 11. After a brief ceremony, the bell tower at First Parish Church will toll 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 2002.We are thankful to the many volunteers who have joined us over the years and 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.
