Del Mar: A ‘Silent Tribute’ to be held Sept. 11 at Powerhouse Park

A “Silent Tribute” will be held on Sept. 11 at Powerhouse Park, starting at 8 a.m. Everyone is invited to attend. Flags are planted in memory of each victim of 9/11. Once planted, observance continues throughout the day. The mayor will speak and taps will be played at 6:30 p.m. This day holds historic or personal significance for all. Volunteers are needed to “plant” the small flags. Everyone is welcome to participate. With 2,973 flags planted, 300 rows long, the impact is memorable. Powerhouse Park is located at 1700 Coast Blvd., Del Mar.
