Part of an annual gathering to remember the fallen. We will gather at the Farmington firehouse. We have two minutes of silence once for the time each of the planes hit the towers. The Farmington Fire cheif says a few words and those hiking to flag rock head off. Flag Rock stands the height of the former world trade center towers. Also meet Randy West - one of the founders of this hike and trail cheif. You do not need to make the hike to attend this event.

Attendees should arrive between 6:15 and 6:30 am. At 6:45 AM the school bell will ring once followed by a minute of silence. This is the time the first tower was hit by the plane. Then we will have a photo opportunity and chance to talk and meet everyone.
