All are invited to visit a special flag display at Riverton City Park to remember the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The display will be open from Thursday, September 2 to Sunday, September 12, 2021. It includes 911 American flags that symbolize that tragic day in our nation’s history as well as special educational boards that provide a timeline of events and sobering facts to teach or remind visitors about the attacks.
“As we observe the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I believe it’s important for each of us to not only remember those who lost their lives in the heartbreaking events that took place that day, but to remember how we felt after 9/11. Our country came together in unity of purpose. We remembered then that there is so much more that unites us than divides us. Only an America that is unified on our nation’s core values of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will be able to withstand those in the world who want do us harm who have a fundamentally different approach to human rights than we do,” said Riverton Mayor Trent Staggs. “We invite everyone to come to Riverton to visit this special display and take some time to remember so that, even with the passage of time, we never forget.”
The display is open for public visitation from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is set up on the event lawn at Riverton City Park at 1452 W 12600 S in Riverton, Utah.
