Speedway installs 3,000 flags for 9/11 anniversary

CAMBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Three-thousand American flags are going up in a field at Michigan International Speedway in honor of the victims of 9/11.

The speedway says members of the Columbia Central High School National Honor Society are helping to put up the display. Other participants include members of the Brooklyn America Legion, Cambridge Township Fire Department, Gleaner Arbor in Adrian and speedway staff members.

The speedway is in Lenawee County’s Cambridge Township, near Brooklyn.

The speedway also is holding a Blood Drive on Wednesday, the 12th anniversary of the Al Qaeda attacks on New York and Washington. It says people should register in advance at its website or by phone because of a limit of 600 donors.
