9/11 ceremony pays tribute to sacrifices


The ceremony at Cabela’s in remembrance of 9/11 was a powerful and an aptly reflective one. (Photos by Correne Martin)

Pastor Andy Doll spoke to around 75 emergency responders and citizens attending the Rembrance Ceremony about the purpose of our country’s first responders and how they face fear in the name of “Liberty and Justice for all.” “Without great tragedy, you won’t have triumph,” he stated.

Dennis Kirschbaum and his fellow Prairie du Chien Honor Guard members solemnly walk the American flag through the crowd Saturday to the flagpole, where they then raised and lowered it to half-staff.

The Honor Guard and bugler performed a beautiful flag raising and lowering for the occasion.

Jerry Letcher, 3rd District American Legionnaire, salutes the flag, carried by Honor Guard members to be flown in front of Cabela’s for Saturday’s ceremony.

Nine first responder units from the Prairie du Chien, Marquette and McGregor area received these small commemorative banners in appreciation of their sacrifices, desire and passion. All were signed with thanks from Cabela’s staff.

McGregor Hook & Ladder members participating in the 9/11 remembrance ceremony and first responder tribute Saturday morning at Cabela’s were (from left) Isaac Sauer, Justin Meyer, Tom Sauer and Tyler Thornton.

As Saturday’s event concluded, Cabela’s General Manager Pat Connaughty pointed out the sunshine rising above the bluffs, upon the American flag.
