22 Years ago today we all remember where we were, who we were with and these dreadful events.
3,000 dead. Four hijacked planes. Two collapsed skyscrapers. A section of the Pentagon seriously damaged. A Pennsylvania field forever impacted. The images from that day are equally unforgettable. These are the images from “the day after”. These are the memories from September 12th, after the world was shocked by the events that unfolded in America in the Fall of 2001.
NY came back, and so did the USA and the world. Many countries were impacted by the attack of September 11th and the 9-11 memorial is a meeting place and tribute.
CONGRATULATIONS to Minnedosa and Sunrise Credit Union on your new arena!

Congrats Derek Mecas. Derek caught this 50 Inch Sturgeon this weekend at the Discovery Center in Brandon. Sun Seekers tell me it had to be released becuase it’s endangered, and while fishing at the Discovery Centre is good, apparently it’s even better in East Brandon just down from the Hydro station near the Hwy 110.
