Sept. 11, 2023, was the 10th annual Stewart County Community Rally Round the Flagpole - 9/11 National Day of Remembrance hosted at the Stewart County Visitors Center by the Dover (Tenn.) Post 72 American Legion Family and the Heroes Picnic hosted by Dover Care Center.
Thank you to all who came to remember and honor the fallen and their families. Ann Priddy, RN-Certified Flight Registered Nurse, was our guest speaker and spoke about her time on Ground Zero assisting within a few hours after the attack. Our Stewart Co. first responders, Andy Luffman-Stewart Co. Fire-Rescue and Jason Frazier-Stewart Co. EMS, spoke about their experiences on the day of the attack.
After the conclusion of the ringing of the bell, moment of silence and flag-waving, first responders and military personnel were treated to a BBQ lunch by the staff of Dover Care Center (formally Diversicare of Dover). Never forget.
