Passing Along A Request

These three ladies have faithfully traveled to Bangor airport since 9/11 to see off deploying American soldiers. They've made a small request:

We the Freeport Flag Ladies need your help!

This year being the 10th anniversary of the events of 9-11 we are working to put on three days of events to commemorate [it]. We have been working very hard for several months and we find due to the economy and many other circumstances that we need to turn to the general public to raise the funds needed for this event. We need to raise $30,000 and we are turning to each of you to ask for your help. This event is non-political -- it is about remembering our past, honoring our heroes. We will be asking each of you to place a $1.00 bill in an envelope and send it to the:

The Freeport Flag Ladies
9-11 10th Anniversary
17 School Street
Freeport, ME 04032

We ask that you share this email with your family, friends and coworkers. It is our sincere hope that dollar-by-dollar we can make this event happen.

I'm staggered it's been ten years! Still recall the images vividly.
