Moving Tributes

As the 15th anniversary of September 11 nears this weekend, two events are coming together in Lackawanna County.   Both are part of a moving experience in more ways than one.

The first element is "The Wall of Remembrance."  It is a more than 100-feet long and six feet high.  The  display documents acts of terror around the world since 1983.   The Wall of Remembrance will remain setup at the Jessup Hose Company #2 Carnival grounds now through Sunday, September 11, at 6 p.m.   The public is allowed to come view it around the clock for free and pay respects to the fallen.   The Wall of Remembrance was escorted to Jessup with honors on Thursday afternoon, September 8.

Another big happening this weekend in the same location ties into the ninth annual Sergeant Jan Argonish Motorcycle Ride on Sunday, September 11.  The ride is held in honor of Sgt. Argonish from Lackawanna County who was killed in action in August of 2007.  Registration for the ride is Sunday, September 11, from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m.  The ride starts at noon, rain or shine.  It'll start and end at the Jessup Hose Company #2 Carnival Grounds which is a new location this year.   To pre-register and learn more,
