Kennedy Space Center to Host 9/11 Flag Restoration

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on Florida’s Space Coast  will host the official Stitching Restoration for the state of Florida. 

On February 18, 2011 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., New York City firefighters will assist local heroes and visitors in a historic stitching ceremony to help sew the Florida restorative patch, which features a flag that has flown over Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, to The National 9/11 Flag. 

Destroyed in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001 and stitched back together seven years later by tornado survivors in Greensburg, Kansas,  The National 9/11 is being taking around the country by the The New York Says Thank You Foundation giving local service heroes in all 50 states the opportunity to stitch the flag back to its original 13-stripe format. 

Once the flag is restored by the 10th Year Anniversary of 9/11, The National 9/11 Flag will become a part of the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum being built at the World Trade Center.

A special $5 off admission coupon to Kennedy Space Center is available for this event. Click here for more details.
