Harkening back to 11 years ago

South Boston News
Residents flocked to South Hill’s Veterans Memorial Park to observe Patriots Day on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America. The event, hosted Tuesday by American Legion Post 79, featured remarks by Town Council member Lisa Jordan (inset), who spoke of the tradition in her family of members serving in the military, police and rescue services. Jordan said 9/11 reminds the nation of the importance of service, courage in the face of danger and the strength and perseverance to do the right thing even when it is not the popular decision. The observance also featured a performance by members of the Park View marching band. (Lisa Clary photo)
