The El Curtola Bridge over Highway 24, home of the largest overpass flag display in the state, will once again be decorated with flags, and feature a variety of family-friendly, non-political patriotic events on the anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attack.
The Remembrance and Candlelight Vigil from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11 will feature Lafayette Boy Scout Troop 243, along with local dignitaries, the Travis Air Force Base Honor Guard, and special speaker Tom Knepell, who was in New York to visit family at the time of the tragedy.
Also making an appearance is Fred "Spike" Schau of the Military Escort Team; he and a group of fellow motorcycle riders will be there to talk about their troop welcome home events and fallen soldiers escort services. The annual affair is organized by Jim Minder and Patty O'Day of the Lafayette Flag Brigade. C. Tyson
