West Linn Remembers ...
9/11 Honoring Those Who Serve ...
Tuesday 9/11/2012 6pm at the Willamette Park boat ramp
Please join us for a brief time of quiet honor, reflection, and remembrance in honor of the nearly 3,000 innocent people from over 70 countries who lost their lives on 9/11, the first responders at the three crash sites, the over 6,000 lost in the ensuing wars on terror, and especially our first responders & soldiers who continue to bravely serve us every day.
Bring a flower to throw into the river. Fire engines, Police, and Sheriff vehicles will be on display afterwards for the kids.

Community 9/11 Yellow Ribbon Project
West A Street over I-205 (by the High School) ... starting Sunday 9/3
We're decorating the West A Street bridge where it crosses I-205 with yellow ribbons in honor of those who served & died on on 9/11, our current first responders, & our all of our troops.
Tens of thousands of cars drive under these bridges every day. Let them know you remember and that you care!
Starting Monday 9/3 at 1pm and continuing all week – please stop by and tie a yellow ribbon on the fence. Bring your family, and remember as you tie 1, 10, 100, or more ribbons.
Help you children to be touched by recent history and to learn to honor & respect those who serve them today.
Ribbons will be supplied.
Senator Ron Wyden chose West Linn as one of his two featured events to visit on the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01. Click below to see the event video.
22 minutes long - the intro song you see with photos was played to the attendees to start the ceremony.
