We want to thank all who helped plan, organize and participate in the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. It was heartwarming to see hundreds of people gather to provide service to our community, whether that was assembling refugee kits, cleaning up Midas Creek Park and channel, cleaning headstones at Riverton City Cemetery, removing weeds from park strips, making thank you cards for veterans, first responders, health care workers and senior citizens (Thanks Stampin’ Up!) or a clothing project for Africa. It was an honor to stand with each other and salute the flag of our great country on this Day of Remembrance. We are grateful for the freedoms we are all able to enjoy and the men and women who protect them.
