MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Special 9/11 Tribute

A very special event is going on in St. George to remember the victims of September 11th 2001. Below is a message from the event organizer. It is going to be very touching, and something you don't want to miss! I am posting it now so that you will be able to mark your calendar and plan on attending, and will post it again as it gets closer.

View the website for complete and up to date information. 

Just a brief note to let you know of a very special project taking place in St. George, Utah September 9th thru the 11th.  My name is Alan L. Foote, I am producing a Patriotic Marathon, so-to-speak, in southern Utah to pay tribute to God, Country and Patriotism.  I am going to sing the Lee Greenwood song, GOD BLESS THE USA, nine-hundred and eleven times beginning Sept 9th at 6:50 a.m. and finish the morning of September 11th, 6:50 a.m. the same time the plane hit the first tower.

Staheli Farms have allowed full use of their property during this event.  I will be singing in a military tent surrounded with military colors - artifacts and memorabilia from the military will be displayed.  A solar light garden will feature 3,947 units -- one for each of the fallen on 911.  A Flag Arena will display flags as to represent all those who gave and continue to give so valiantly for our freedoms.  And yes, Apple Pie - what could be more American than eating a slice of apple pie and sharing your heart with your family or a stranger.  

Here is the kicker -- we would invite anyone who would wish to, to stop where ever they are the morning of September 11th and sing with me the nine-hundred-eleventh time, GOD BLESS THE USA. This will be choreographed thru media personalities - -  the prayer being that as many as can will catch the spirit of their own heart-felt patriotism and sing that great anthem at the time mentioned.
