In memory of the people who perished as a result of the terrorist attacks Sept. 11, 2001, and in keeping with President Obama’s Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance proclamation, Fresno State will lower its flags to half staff on Tuesday, Sept. 11, from sunrise to sunset.

The campus flag poles are at the east end of the Rose Garden, at the west flagpoles in front of the North Gym, at the Save Mart Center and any Athletics venue where events are hosted by Fresno State.

President Obama invites all Americans to participate in community service to honor those our nation lost that day. Please consider volunteering with a faith-based organization, collecting food and clothing for those in need, preparing packages for our men and women in uniform or serving the community in whatever way you chose.

Let our service demonstrate that we Americans are resilient – determined to make ourselves even stronger by serving each other.
