On a weekend where we celebrate our independence, South Milwaukeeans also have a chance to remember a defining moment in our nation’s history.
The 9-11 Anniversary Manhattan to Manhattan Bus Tour makes a stop at the South Milwaukee Fire Department around noon on Sunday.
The goal? According to the flier I received from local firefighter Brian Bieganski:
To Visit and have fellowship with hundreds of police/fire departments and other organizations—collecting pictures with the bus at hosted stops while raising donations through the sale of 9/11 Patches, Decals, Pins and Flags. Net proceeds will benefit the FDNY Bravest Scholarship Fund, Terry Farrell Fund and the Feal Good Foundation—donated in New York on 9/11/11
The event is open to the public, so join me and stop by … and celebrate our everyday heroes while remembering the fallen.
