The United Way of Southern Nevada Volunteer Center will host the National 9/11 Flag Tour on Thursday. The flag will be at the center at the Historic Fifth Street School between noon and 3 p.m.
People are being encouraged to go to the event and stitch fabric from a retired American Flag onto the National 9/11 Flag. The National Flag was recovered from Ground Zero after the attacks on America. It is being sent around the country to communities in all 50 states. When it is finished, the flag will be placed at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City.
