The group will begin with prayer followed by a ceremony, written by Bro. Alex Rauschenberger, Deputy State Master Councilor, comparing the heroic actions of Jacques DeMolay with those of the passengers of United Flight 93 and how both saved hundreds or thousands of lives by sacrificing their own. A wreath will be laid at the memorial in honor of the lives given in sacrifice.
Following the 15-30 minute ceremony, there will be ample time to tour the National Memorial grounds before we head into
to enjoy a dinner at Ruby Tuesday

Center Avenue, Somerset, PA, (pay for your own
group is planning
on leaving at 1pm. That should put them in Shanksville around 2:30. Since they are
not familiar with the memorial set up, it will give them plenty of time to talk
to the park workers to see where they want them according to the park permit
obtained for the event. There will around 40 chairs available on a first come first serve basis - everyone will just need to gather close and the young men will
need to project, especially if the weather is not good. Also available are three wheelchairs. Butler
What a great way to observe an important day!
