Just a note to ask and remind our great American citizens of our valley to please mark their calendars and to call all family members and friends to help "pack" WesBanco Arena at 4 p.m. on Sept. 11. This 10-year memorial of "our" Pearl Harbor hopefully will be attended by our patriotic people who fly our American flag and those who honor America.
We have great people with a lot of American pride living in this grand valley and this will be a beautiful way of showing it once again.
Our committee members have worked for the past several months to make this memorial a giant success and you can do your share by being a part of it with your presence.
Bring your children and grandchildren, wear your red, white and blue colors, carry your flag and once again be part of America. Let's pack WesBanco Arena and show our great nation that we still lead in Americanism and patriotism.
Pat Duffy, Americanism chairman
Wheeling Elks Lodge 28
