COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Fifty volunteers are needed to help set up a 9/11 memorial at the Ohio Statehouse.
The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) is looking for 50 people to help install a flag display in commemoration of the 22nd anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
Starting Thursday, Sept. 7 and ending Tuesday, Sept. 12, the installation will consist of 2,977 flags representing each of the victims who died in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and on Flight 93.
