"Thanks to generous donations from the American Legion Post 2 out of Knoxville and from Woodmen of the World, the site is now home to a 30-foot flagpole that is capable of flying a flag all the time," officials said in a released statement. "We invite the community to be a part of this event with us, as we remember all the lives lost that day. Please join us starting at 7:45 a.m. on September 11, 2016. The event will be held in the bus loop at Oak Ridge High School on the Providence Road side."
