Warner, New Hampshire Remembers 9-11

On September 8th, 2002, about 11:30 AM, the town of Warner, New Hampshire came together to remember those whose lives were lost on September 11, 2001 in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania...
Firefighters and police began a processional, walking a few hundred feet from the United Church of Warner to the Town Hall.
Firefighters, law enforcement and other folk had gathered under a strong September sun to share in the event.
Proudly, with Old Glory assembled on the green, Peter St. James opened the ceremony.
The Magdalen College Choir, under the direction of Thomas Pendergast, was on hand for the entire service, and in this photo, waits to sing "The Star Spangled Banner"...
Rev. J. J. Bodine brought the Invocation and set the tone, one of humility, and courage for the future.
On behalf of the Warner Fire Department, Deputy Chief Fred Hill welcomes all who attended, and introduced their honored guests, Russell Keat, a subterranean rescue expert, Dave McGovern, Matt Roach and James McBerney, all from Engine Company 58, NYCFD and also Karen Jacob & Sid Feldman, who lavishly hosted Warner's firefighters while in NYC.
Engine 58 Firefighter Dave McGovern shared some thoughts about being a New York City firefighter, asked about the previous evening's ball game,
and encouraged the crowd to sing 'Happy Birthday' to fellow firefighter Matt Roach, shown here, in the front left.
The Magdalen College Choir sings "America The Beautiful" as 2 year old Mariah Clark looks on...
Chief Richard Brown ceremonially rang the bell, meaning a firefighter has been lost...
David Bourne, pipes the mournful melody of "Amazing Grace'...
Slowly the flag comes down while Peter St. James chronicles each movement...
explaining the symbolism of each step, each fold, for all have meaning...
The flag, now carefully folded, was presented to the NYC fire department...
The choir then sang its last selection, "God Bless America", then Peter St. James, (not seen) read "The Fireman's Prayer".
The wreath below the lectern is removed to be placed at the Warner Fire Station.
