For the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Tracey Orlando, Southold resident and wife to former Town Board member Vincent Orlando, organized an emotional which had been to Jean in Peconic.
This year, she's heading up a simpler way to remember those who died on September 11, 2001. The community is invited to come to the 9/11 memorial at Cochran Park on Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m, where they can take a flag that will be provided and place it in the park to memorialize the fallen.
"Although there will not be a formal ceremony the public is encouraged either on their way home from work or after dinner to take a few moments to place flags in tribute of our fellow Americans as well as to touch to an I-beam from the World Trade Center," Orlando wrote in an email.
The base of the metal osprey sculpture is beam which fell from the 34th floor of one of the World Trade Center towers.
