SEVEN POINTS–Tuesday, all around the lake area, organizations, churches, schools and individuals remembered the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001 and the thousands of lives lost.
Observances were held in commemoration not only of the lives lost, but of those who worked under the terrible circumstances to save lives, ultimately risking and sometimes losing theirs.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 4376, Commander Sid McIntosh, and its Auxiliary, president Lynn Hill, in Seven Points hosted a memorial service and also honored the Seven Points departments of police, fire and its city employees.
McIntosh gave a presentation recalling the events of Sept. 11, 2001.
The 30-minute program was followed by a meal of meat loaf, mashed potatoes, green beans and homemade desserts.
