Local residents, officials mark Sept. 11 with ceremony at Flagler Beach Pier
A dozen red roses fell into the waves off the end of the Flagler Beach pier as locals released them during a ceremony Tuesday morning in remembrance of the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks.
Approximately 50 people attended the event, which was organized by the Knights of Columbus Council 10514 and drew local residents, veterans, Junior ROTC students, law enforcement and fire rescue personnel and officials from Flagler Beach and Flagler County. (City of Palm Coast officials held their own separate ceremony immediately preceding a regular 9 a.m. Palm Coast City Council workshop.)
The Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Color Guard led the procession down the pier, and the ceremony was followed by a procession from the Flagler Beach Pier to the Santa Maria del Mar Catholic Church, where a special Mass was held.
