September 11, 2001 was the worst attack on US soil since Pearl Harbor. Strong memories come back and jar our minds so we don't forget the horrible events that rocked our country to the core in less than 2 hours and for probably the first time in US. history shut the United States down, completely. Air traffic in and over the United States was halted. All boarders in and out of the country were closed. All non essential activities in the country were shut down, and we were alerted that we had been attacked by terrorists. Life as we were used to was over. Unless you were on another planet that day, you know the rest.
Three years later, the memories are still there and we have not forgotten that fateful day in September. So many innocent people perished and the destruction was so vast, it was beyond comprehension.
This year as in the past, Squadron 86 Sons of the American Legion will be continuing to mark this day with a solemn flag lowering ceremony through out downtown Susquehanna. On Saturday morning, September 11 we will gather at American Legion Post 86, on Main Street between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.
At approximately 8:35 a.m., we will begin our walk to the various Flagpole sites. At the appropriate times at each site, the flags will be lowered to commemorate the event of that moment. There will be a moment of silence at each flagpole for those attending to reflect and remember before moving on to the next site. These flags will remain at half-staff all day September 11.
The public is more than welcome to join Squadron 86 during this tribute. If you have young children, this can be an excellent learning experience for them as well and parents are strongly encouraged to bring them along.

All landscapes reveal clues about their past, if we only know whereand howto look. On Sunday, September 5, the human and natural history of diverse and beautiful Florence Shelly Preserve, Thompson, PA, will be unveiled during a walk led by local artist and member of the Florence Shelly Preserve Stewardship Committee, Andy Gardner.
At first glance, the preserve, which is owned by The Nature Conservancy and managed by the volunteer stewardship committee, looks like pure wilderness. A stream, certified to be of exceptional purity, flows through stands of hemlock. Black bears feast in thickets of wild blueberry. Beavers build dams in a pond scooped out by glaciers. But Gardner will show walk participants how to look through the landscape as it is now and detect its history over the past two hundred years.
Those who join the walk will enjoy seeking out obvious, but often-missed hints that offer a way of looking beyond the surface of a place and detecting its complex and fascinating past. As Gardner remarks, "When you look for the anomaly, for what doesnt seem to belong, you learn all kinds of interesting things."
The walk begins at 2:00 p.m. and will last about two hours. Meet at the preserve parking lot one mile north of Thompson on Route 171, where Stack Road intersects. For further information, contact Andy Gardner at (570) 7273362, Carol or Dave Clemens, (570) 8794244.
