Yellow ribbons downtown will help remember 9/11
Next week more than 3,000 yellow ribbons will adorn downtown Rhinelander as a reminder of the attacks to our country 10 years ago on September 11, 2001. The community is invited to help tie ribbons on the light poles next Thursday, Sept. 8. All who wish to help are invited to meet on Thursday, Sept. 8, at 9 a.m., at the corner of Brown and Davenport in Downtown Rhinelander.
“This gesture is a sign of the community spirit we hold as we remember the thousands who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks,” said DRI Promotion Chair Ben Rosenthal. “Our country and our community rely on its people, our values and our actions. As a community we’re remembering together.”
Sponsors of the yellow ribbon project include Forth Floral, Danner’s Shoes, Diel Insurance Group, Carpetiers Carpet One, Forest TV and Appliance, BucketHeads Bar and Grill, Associated Bank, Coyote 93.7 and Downtown Rhinelander Inc.
Ribbons will be tied on the downtown historic light poles along Brown, Davenport and Stevens streets. They will remain on the poles until Tuesday, Sept. 13; help is also needed to remove the ribbons that day.
