Bell rings at 9/11 tribute
It was the day that changed America forever – Sept. 11, 2001, the day terrorists attacked the United States. This year marks 16 years since that fateful day, and to honor those who lost their lives, a Sept. 11 memorial was held at the Veterans Tribute at River Country Plaza in Cadott.
Larry Buttke said last year, he and about three others gathered on that day, but decided more needed to be done, so they began work on making it bigger. This year, along with Buttke, about three dozen people gath-ered in honor of 9/11, and he says they plan to hold another tribute next year.
Along with the Cadott High School Band, who performed the National Anthem to begin the service, veterans, police officers and firefighters gathered to give remembrance to all who lost their lives that day.
