Patriot Day 2015:
Remembrance and Reflection
Friday, September 11th
All are Welcome -- Free to the Public
This year marks the 14th anniversary of the tragedy of September 11, 2001 that changed us all forever.
Andreas Wesemann, Lt Col, USAF (ret) will be the keynote speaker and will discuss why it is vital that we all remember that day, reflect on those that lost their lives, and recommit ourselves to connecting with others in our own community so that we may build bridges between our different faiths, backgrounds and circle of friends. The Cache Community Connections organization was founded after the events of 9-11 to help our community attain these goals.
Colonel Wesemann will also share his experiences as a Rescue Pilot to inspire us all to search for those that need our help, and rescue those that cannot help themselves. Our local heroes --- Police, Fire, Rescue, Civil Air Patrol and Military Veterans will be recognized (please attend in your dress uniform). It will be an evening of music and powerful stories of rescue.
