First and foremost, I would like to say that this has been one crazy Summer and as it comes to an end, I expect
this Fall and Winter to be just as busy. You can tell by the upcoming events! But before we get to the events, I
would like to take the time to remind everyone that this is the 20 th anniversary of September 11 th ! Patriot Day is
a United States national observance that honors the memory of those who were killed in the September 11
attacks. It was first observed in 2002, after the proclamation by President George W. Bush.
