OPERATION NEVER FORGET, UNITED WE STAND UNITED WE SEW–
The 31’ x 21’ flag is made up of smaller separate flags sew togther, that bears the name of each of the 3,012 victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. There are also inset flags of 86 nations reflecting the countries the victims came from. The flag also includes insignia of police, fire and emergency services that responded to the scene, as well as other agencies that lost members in the attacks. The project was organized by Thomas McBrien, IV, from Upper Black Eddy, PA and the sewing began in November 2001. It was sewn by Boy Scouts, student groups and senior citizen groups from Bucks County, PA and Hunterdon County, NJ. It was first displayed at the unveiling on the USS Intrepid on March 11, 2002 and included other sites such as the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania capitol in Harrisburg. McBrien is hoping to present the flag to the 9-11 Museum in New York City on Veteran’s Day, November 11, where it will be housed permanently. The display at the Bloomsburg Fair will be the 95th location where it was displayed.

DUCK DYNASTY CANCELLED
We are sorry to have to announce that the Evening With The Robertson’s Show at the 159th Annual Bloomsburg Fair has been cancelled due to an unexpected conflict in scheduling.
The Evening With The Robertsons was to feature A & E’ Duck Dynasty stars Willie & Korie Robertson, who were going to answer questions submitted by local fans of the show, who wanted to know how the Robertsons as a couple have raised their children, operated a successful business, dealt with celebrity status, and maintained successful, loving marriage for many years.
Korie Robertson has been summoned to Los Angeles in support of daughter SADIE with her recent success on Dancing With The Stars which airs live on Monday night.
Since the show was booked as a package with both Willie & Korie, the parties opted to cancel the upcoming performance.
All ticket purchases will be refunded in full by the Bloomsburg Fair. Due to the large task of exchanging ZZ Top tickets for Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Duck Dynasty refunds may not be made until after fair.
Lynyrd Skynyrd tickets are avialable to the general public to purchase now.
