Firefighters with Neenah-Menasha Fire Rescue took time on their days off to create a piece in remembrance of 9/11.
The piece, coming in at 10 feet by 5 feet, replaces a 17-year-old display that hung in the stairwell of Station 32. “The display was given to us after 9/11. It had pictures of the event and the saying ‘never forget’,” says Firefighter Scott Harding. After nearly two decades in the stairwell, Harding says the piece started to fade and lose its luster. But he and the rest of NMFR wanted to replace it.
“That’s when we got the idea for the big flag,” says Harding.
The big flag, seen below, almost happened by accident.
