Peace Lutheran Church is hosting the Flags of Peace Event from Sept. 10 – Sept. 12
The church will fly 150 flags in honor of the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9-11. The church is looking for sponsors and others to purchase flags.
The flags will be lit each morning. A ceremony at 9 a.m. Saturday will kick off the day full of events and food from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. A special Sunday worship service will be held at 10 a.m.
Visitors can see the police K-9 unit, lower Alabama search and rescue, fire trucks, Junior Marines and participate in a flag retirement ceremony.
Purchase a flag for $35 and decorate the pole in memory of someone you love. Purchased flags can be taken home.
