Team RWB plans annual 9/11 Moving Tribute

PHOTO PROVIDED The sixth annual 9/11 Moving Tribute is open to anyone interested in carrying the American flag to observe the anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.

LOCK HAVEN — Everyone may join the Lock Haven-Williamsport chapter of Team Red, White, and Blue and spend time this Tuesday carrying the American flag in remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States.

This is the sixth annual 9/11 Moving Tribute to honor first-responders, veterans and families affected by the 9/11 terror attacks.

The event will be held from the Annie Halenbake Ross Library, 232 W. Main St., starting at 5:45 a.m., the time the hijackers passed through security on Sept. 11, 2001, and continuing until 8:30 p.m., when President Bush addressed the nation.

Over the course of the day, many people — runners, walkers and cyclists — will keep flags moving throughout the community in remembrance of 9/11.

Two of the flags will be presented to a veteran and a community member after the event takes place.

There are multiple half-hour time slots available throughout the day, and anyone may sign up for as many time slots as he or she wishes. Everyone will join together at the end of the day for a group walk with all the flags.

All are welcome, families, children, furry friends. Flags will be available, though participants are also encouraged to bring their own.

Refreshments will be provided.

A Team RWB spokesman said, “Let’s make this year’s turnout the biggest yet!”
