Thanks to all the heroes


A big thank you to the citizens of West Linn who helped decorate the A Street bridge with 9,000 yellow ribbons —3,000 honoring those who died on 9/11 and 6,000 for the soldiers lost in the subsequent war on terror. A special thanks to West Linn's Boy Scout Troop 149 who tied most of the ribbons and to the West Linn Tidings for their event coverage. 

Thank you to my fellow citizens who came out for the 9/11 Honor Those Who Serve ceremony at Willamette Park. We are humbled by those who gave it all for us — and for today's first responders, who would do it all again in a heartbeat. We, the citizens of West Linn, thank you — you are all heroes!
