Rotarian Bob Snow beautifully prepared the 911 Memorial last Sunday and again this morning, getting it ready for Monday's memorial service.  Sheri David, Bob's colleague on the Rowley Select Board, and her husband Scott stopped by to help out.  The David's also bought a new American Flag to display on the Rotary Flagpole.  
As he does every year, Bill Freitag from Country Gardens donated the mums.  As you can see, due to the abundance of rain this summer, all the flowers around the monument have flourished.    
Sadly, three Rowley residents perished in the tragedy.  They will be remembered on Monday, September 11 during a brief ceremony at the Memorial led by representatives from the Rowley Police, Fire, Select Board, town officials, and Ipswich-Rowley Rotary participating.  The gathering will assemble at 8:30 AM, with the ceremony scheduled to begin at 8:45 - the time that Flight 11 struck Tower 1.
The memorial is located at the intersection of Pleasant and Cross Streets in Rowley.
