The Patriot Flag

5 07 2011

The Patriot Flag.

The 60-foot Sept. 11 memorial flag flew during Attleboro’s Fourth of July fireworks show.

The flag is dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives on Sept. 11. A nonprofit, all-volunteer group has been traveling around the United States since last September with the goal of stopping in each of the 50 states in 50 weeks leading up to the 10-year anniversary of the infamous day.

Material (the flag remnant cut off when the flag was repaired) will also be on the tour with The Patriot Flag. This 4 X 20.5 foot piece of the flag was saved when the flag was repaired. Historic Patriot Flag signed from across America.

60-foot Sept. 11 memorial flag flew during Fourth of July fireworks show

5 07 2011

The 60-foot Sept. 11 memorial flag flew during Attleboro’s Fourth of July fireworks show.

The Patriot Flag will be continuing its tour of the United States with an unexpected stop in Attleboro during the city’s Fourth of July fireworks display.

The flag was originally scheduled to be flown in Boston; however, that city was ultimately unable to accommodate the flag, according to Attleboro

Fire Chief Scott Lachance.

The last-minute change forced the Patriot Flag organizers to make numerous phone calls to various Massachusetts fire departments in an attempt to

find a new Fourth of July event that could host the historic flag.

Lachance was told of their problem by Manfield Fire Chief Neil Boldrigini, and he jumped on the chance to bring the flag to Attleboro and have it

flown during the city’s fireworks display.

“As much as a benefit it is to us, we were actually helping them out as well,” Lachance said.

The flag is dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives on Sept. 11. A nonprofit, all-volunteer group has been traveling around the United

States since last September with the goal of stopping in each of the 50 states in 50 weeks leading up to the 10-year anniversary of the infamous day.

The flag has so far made stops in 44 states, 140 different cities and traveled nearly 100,000 miles.

“It’s pretty impressive,” Lachance said of the group’s efforts.

The fire department is working out the details of the massive flag’s presentation, but they are planning to have the flag flown from a ladder truck and

hang over North Avenue.

The flag’s size and weight of 75 pounds will require many people to raise and lower it.

Eliminate of a Swing Bridge and More – Naples Maine

2 06 2011

Naples, Maine Causeway Construction Schedule Posted; Big Change Coming to Maine’s Sebago Lakes Region

Eliminate the old swing bridge that connects the Naples, Maine Causeway between Long Lake and Brandy Pond and replace it with a permanent span has begun.

For years, the swing bridge has halted traffic while allowing watercraft of all shapes and sizes to pass between Long Lake and Brandy Pond. Now, a new bridge construction project has begun that will allow most boats and all vehicular traffic to proceed unabated in either direction, day and night, every day of the year.

While the debate over the bridge has, at times, been contentious, now that the project has finally been decided upon and begun, all eyes are on its progress and eventual completion and discussion is more focussed on what the end result will be.

After the opening of the new bridge to two way traffic, construction and deconstruction will continue. The old swing bridge will be dismantled and boat traffic will commence by Memorial Day 2012. Paving will be completed throughout the summer of 2012 as well as plantings and landscaping, and general cleanup. The project will come to full completion on May 15, 2013.
