The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce with the assistance of the City of Salisbury are creating a place of remembrance, a memorial to the victims in New York City, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania. An avenue will be erected to honor the military, police, fire, medical and other personnel who are serving today, have served, and those who have paid the ultimate price to protect our freedom.
Community groups, organizations, churches and businesses may create signs, banners or displays in honor of the tenth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. The Chamber will place the offered signage along Carroll Street next to the Wicomico River for the people of our community to view as they drive by or stroll through the display area. The displays will go up on September 3-4 and be removed after the Third Friday on September 16.
Cost of displaying your tribute will be $25 for non-profits, community groups, and religious organizations. Businesses are asked to pay $50. Applications are available from the Chamber. The Display Committee reserves the right to decline posting offensive displays
