On Sunday morning, our members and friends were able to join together with many, many other emergency service providers from across the area to climb in the Lancaster PA 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb at Lancaster Barnstormers Clipper Magazine Stadium. This is an annual event that Quarryville members have taken part in for several years.
This year, we were able to take several of our young members (and family members) that were not even born until several years after the attacks of 9/11/01. We were very fortunate to have USMC Veteran Mark Abbott anf friends along climbing with us. After the climb, Mark took a few minutes to talk to all of us about his experience with 9-11 and as a US Marine. This was a great short lesson for all of the young people, and a great reminder of what occurred 18 years ago for all of the rest of us.
Thanks to all the people that put this great event together, and to all the sponsors that help to make it happen. Thanks to Bob Devonshire for the great pictures as always.
