Remembering 9/11 and Our Wounded Warriors



The LaGrange Rotary clubs are extending an invitation to the residents of the town of LaGrange and surrounding area to join us at 8:00 AM on Saturday September 11, 2010, at the Memorial Garden on Stringham Road (LaGrange Soccer Fields).  There will be a service dedicated to those men and women who lost their lives on that infamous day. 


We are also asking you to donate needed items for those men and women being cared for at the Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, DC.  Many have suffered severe injuries that will be with them for a lifetime.  Let us together bring some hope and a little joy to their lives as they recover.  Most of all, we thank them for their courage and service to our country.
