As the nation and world look towards the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the Rushford American Legion and Farmers Co-op Elevator Company invite the public to a flag dedication ceremony to remember and honor the thousands of innocent men, women, and children killed when terrorists hijacked four planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington and a field near Shanksville, Penn.

The flag dedication will be held at 6 p.m. on September 11 at the Farmers Co-op Elevator South Fork grain site in Rushford. The ceremony will honor those who gave their lives in 2001 and those who we have lost in the continuing war on terrorism.

This event is made possible by the Rushford American Legion Family Post 94 and Farmers Co-op Elevator.

Farmer’s Co-op Elevator Company General Manager Todd Rosvold says, “Last year we were proud to donate the site, light and electricity for this memorial that is a visible testament to the courage, heroism, and grit of those who responded to this horrific act of terrorism. We thank the American Legion for conducting the ceremony again this year and invite local citizens to attend.”
