Firefighters seek volunteers, lighters to help light candles on Circle
The Tallmadge Fire Department invites residents to assist with the city's annual September 11 Memorial starting at 9 a.m. Sept. 11 on Tallmadge Circle.
Firefighters and others will place nearly 3,000 memorial candles on the sidewalks of Tallmadge Circle at that time. Each one of the nearly 3,000 candles represent a victim in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The candles will remain lit -- with help -- throughout the day and well into the following morning.
The Tallmadge Fire Department appreciates all the help our citizens have provided throughout the past years with the September 11 Memorial, said Tallmadge FireMedic Jeff Quick.
Volunteers are asked to take their own lighters to assist firefighters in lighting candles as they are unable to provide them for everyone.
Firefighters also request assistance in collecting the candles on Sept. 12 beginning at 9 a.m.
