Hundreds of Scouts will take part with a flag salute, as well as a police and fire department color guard, and a military salute battery with howitzer cannons. The program begins at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 11, and everyone is invited.
An important part of the remembrance, said organizers, is an essay contest for middle and high school students on "How 9-11 Changed the Lives of First Responders." First prize is $250; second, $150; third, $100, to be presented at an Exchange Club luncheon at Faz restaurant in Danville.
Essays of 250-300 words are due by 5 p.m., Monday, Sept. 22, and must include the writer's name, school, grade, street address, city and ZIP code, telephone number and e-mail address. E-mail entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the remembrance, historical documents will be on display in the Oak Hill Community Center.
