Coplay column: Borough asks residents to display flags Sept. 11

Thursday, September 6, 2012 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Columns

As the Borough of Coplay joins with the nation next Tuesday in remembering the thousands of lives lost on Sept. 11, borough officials are asking residents to display U.S. flags.

Flags can be small or large and flown on porches or lawns. Fewer flags have been flown each passing year since the tragedy.

Although the borough no longer has luminaria packages available, the Sept. 11 project "Light Up Your Neighborhood" continues.

Residents need only a paper bag, candle and sand or litter to balance the candles. Place them in front of the home or walkway as dusk sets in.
