Woodmen of World ceremony honors heroes, victims

Posted: Tuesday, September 9, 2008 2:11 pm

Woodmen of the World Lodge 291 will hold a special community ceremony to honor the heroes and victims of Sept. 11, 2001, at 1 p.m., Sept. 11, at the Sharon Senior Adult Center. The ceremony, called In Honor and Remembrance — Woodmen of the World Salutes America’s Heroes, will also include a salute to the heroes in our own community — the police officers, firefighters, members of the armed forces and others — who help ensure our safety each and every day. This is the seventh year that Woodmen of the World has sponsored the In Honor and Remembrance project. Since the terrorist attack of 2001, thousands of ceremonies have been being conducted by Woodmen of the World lodges nationwide. Many of the ceremonies, held at town halls, police and fire stations, schools and other community buildings, include the dedication of flagpoles and commemorative plaques and the presentation of U.S. flags. Woodmen of the World, founded in 1890, is a fraternal benefit organization offering insurance protection, financial security and fraternal benefits. Nearly 800,000 Woodmen of the World members across the country share a commitment to family, community and country. For more information contact David Spencer at 587-9635.wcp 9-9
