Never Forget

 
 

"September 11 is one of our worst days but it brought out the best in us. It unified us as a country and showed our charitable instincts and reminded us of what we stood for and stand for." - Sen. Lamar Alexander

This Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks on the US. As you enjoy your weekend with friends, and family please take a moment to remember those who lost their lives that day.
  Over 5,000 US Soldiers have been killed in action since 9/11. Please make sure that you remember to think of them and thank them for their sacrifice. We all know that freedom is never free, and I am thankful for all of the men and women who are willing to go out and defend that freedom every day.
  If you are able, please try to get out to support the 9/11 Memorial Ride also. Whether by riding or lining the streets all support is welcome. I have a feeling this ride is going to be bigger than ever.
  ‘Tank’ Baird, Todd Winder and everyone from the 9/11 Memorial Coalition and the Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Company do everything possible to make the ride a safe experience while honoring all those who lost their lives as a result of the attacks. We thank them for everything they do.
  Events at the Fire Company begin at 8 a.m. and the ride starts at 3 p.m.
  Please be careful on Sunday. The ride will cause issues with traffic being slow and roads being blocked. Please note the map on page 7 so you know where the ride will be and what areas to avoid if you need to be travelling during the ride.
  Big areas to avoid are Southern Ave. in South Williamsport, and all of West and East Third St. Remember if you need to get across Third St. during the ride you need to be prepared for it take a while so get your errands done early or find another way around.

  I’m having a hard time believing that it is September already. Pretty soon fall will be here and I will need to make another Fall Bucket List that I will never complete!
  Fall is a busy time around Webb Weekly. We have our Fall Home Improvement issue coming up on the 21st and the following week we will have our Fall Hunting, Fishing and Outdoors special section. Be sure to contact us or your sales rep if you are interested in running in either (or both!) of those sections! ;-)
  While all of this is going on, Jimmy and I will be doing our Webb Weekly Live broadcasts and we will also be keeping busy bringing you Friday Night Football on www.webbweeklylive.com.
  Speaking of, this week Gary and Babe will be up on the hill at STA Stadium as Hazelton visits the Millionaires and Jamie and Paul will be following the Lancers to Mifflinburg. Remember, pre-game starts at 6:50 p.m. and kick-off is at 7:00 p.m.
  As always, replays of all the games came be found under the ‘game replays’ tab on www.webbweeklylive.com.
