Patch Picks: Ways to Commemorate 9/11

Sunday marks 10 years since Sept. 11, 2001.

The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch presents its weekly Patch Picks feature, highlighting editor and reader picks of great local businesses, destinations, services, organizations, ways to spend a day off and more.

This week's Patch Picks are five ways to remember the terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, and the lives lost in those attacks.

  • Flags at Half-Mast: U.S. flags at every  building will fly at half-mast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If you have a U.S. flag at your home, consider flying it at half-mast this weekend.
  • : More than 250,000 spectators are expected to attend this airshow. The event, which takes place at the Pittsburgh International Airport Air Reserve Station, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Patch will be there, so please stop at our tent to say hello. Parking and admission are free. On Sunday, the show will pause for an observance of the 9/11 attacks.
  • : This is a brief ceremony on Sunday morning that will include special music and mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to the very minute.
  • : A Sunday evening event in nearby South Park. The Travis Manion Foundation's philosophy is to "honor the fallen by challenging the living."
  • Be with Family: Most importantly, cherish your loved ones. The Steelers play at around 1 p.m. on Sunday, so make a day of it and join a Steelers party with family and friends. The TV broadcast of the game is on CBS (KDKA, locally).

Take time this weekend to remember 9/11. And check back each week for more Patch Picks.
