They lined the entrance drive with nearly a dozen fire trucks, lights flashing, as an aerial unit from Aboite Township proudly flew a large American flag over the entrance. It was one of many area and national tributes on the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.
