Heritage Academy National Honor Society students helped to create a display of flags, one for each person who died on 9/11.

The display was set up Aug. 27 at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Mercersburg, Pa. The students were helping a Boy Scout earn his Eagle Scout badge.

The American Legion in Mercersburg will join the VFW on Sunday, Sept. 11, from 1 to 5 p.m. for an open house at the VFW. During the open house, scenes from the tragedy will be shown. There will be a ceremony at 4 p.m. by the flag pole.

 People can stop by and learn what the organizations do. Applications for membership will be available at that time. Refreshments also will be available.

The flags will remain out for one month with information about how many people were killed at each location.
