Daniel R. Olsen Post 594 remembers 9/11

Eagan, MN

The Daniel R. Olsen Post 594 Family held a Patriot Day remembrance at the Eagan Tribute Plaza in Central Park to honor the victims of 9/11/2001. Post 594 Commander John Flynn served as emcee of the program, supported by members of the Eagan Junior Girl Scouts who led the audience in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Auxiliary Unit 594 member and Eagan High School teacher Kim Hanson Ashland delivered a moving speech recalling the events of Sept. 11, 2001, and how that day changed America. Flynn then called for a moment of silence, which was followed by Unit President Susan Flynn and the Junior Girl Scouts leading all in the singing of “God Bless America." Flynn then provided a benediction. The event concluded at sundown, with Past Post Commander Tom Mullon sounding taps while members of the Post 594 color guard raised the U.S. flag, as well as the fire and police department flags, to full-staff.
