SANDY — Colonial Flag will hold its 11th annual 9-11 Healing Field flag display to remember the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S.
Hundreds of American flags will be posted in a patriotic tribute honoring the victims of the attacks, first responders and the military. Volunteers are welcome to help set up the display beginning Friday at 6 p.m. Volunteers will post hundreds of 3- by-5-foot flags atop 8-foot poles.
The display will be at 10000 Centennial Parkway, on the south side of Sandy City Hall, from Saturday through Wednesday. It is open to the public.
On Sunday at 6 p.m., there will be a dedication of the Hope Rising Monument in a ceremony honoring fallen heroes. This monument re-creates the famous photograph taken of three New York firemen raising the flag amid the rubble at ground zero after the terrorist attacks.
The ceremony will honor those who have died most recently who were serving as first responders or in the military; Salt Lake Fire Chief Jim Judd, Utah Highway Patrol trooper Aaron Beesley and Marine Cpl. Joshua Vielstich.
Those desiring to volunteer in posting the flags or who wish to sponsor a flag may contact Bekah Hintze at 801-256-3639.
