In remembrance of the events of 9/11/2001, volunteers and first responders installed 2977 flags on the lawn of the Ohio Statehouse. Thanks to the HandsOn Central Ohio volunteers, and everyone who helped.
Remembrance presentations were made by Ernest Perry, Jr., CEO HandsOn Central Ohio; Senator Frank LaRose, Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board; Deputy Fire Chief Jack Reall; Columbus City Council President Shannon Hardin; representatives from the offices of US Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown; and Governor John Kasich.
Thank you to the staff of CSRAB for organizing the grounds and event. The flags will be on display until 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13.
