City Observes 9/11 Anniversary

The Westerville Divisions of Police and Fire Chaplain Corps invite the community to attend the sixth-annual 9/11 Memorial Observance on Friday, September 11 at 12 p.m.. This annual ceremony takes place at First Responder's Park, 374 W. Main St., the site where steel from the felled North Tower of the World Trade Center now stands. The theme of this year's ceremony is "Remembering the Fallen, Protecting the Future," paying special tribute to both law enforcement officers who lost their lives that day in 2001 as well as those who continue to protect our communities today.

Honor Flight to Honor Veterans with D.C. Trip

Westerville’s seventh community-sponsored Honor Flight of veterans to Washington D.C. will take place on Saturday, September 19. The Honor Flight program flies senior veterans from WWII and the Korean conflict to the nation’s capitol to see their monuments, free of charge, as a way of thanking them for their service to our country. To date, thousands of dollars have been raised in Westerville for this program.

Each trip to Washington features a “mail call,” where veterans receive messages of gratitude from children and adults. Students who cannot yet write are encouraged to draw pictures. Pupils should sign their correspondence using first names only. Notes and drawings can be sent to Lisa Reschke at Cherrington Elementary School, which is located at 522 Cherrington Road inWesterville. To be included in the September flight, letters must be received by no later than September 9.

The public is also invited to welcome home the returning veterans on the evening of September 19 at Port Columbus International Airport. Participants are being asked to gather in the Southwest baggage claim area around 8:45 p.m.

For further information about the letter campaign, please contact Lisa Reschke at . To donate to Honor Flight or learn more about how to get involved, visit
