FAIRFAX SOCIETY ADDS TO SEPTEMBER 11TH COLLECTION

FAIRFAX - The Fairfax Historical Society is proud to announce its acquisition of the memos and letters that the administration of Bellows Free Academy in Fairfax sent to faculty, staff, students and parents in conjunction with the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11.

These memos and letters have been posted on our web site:

These memos add to our collection of remembrances of where people were when they found out hijacked planes had crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.. A fourth plane crashed in Penn.

The Fairfax Historical Society would like to thank the administration of BFA-Fairfax and the Franklin West Supervisory Union for letting us post these memos on our web site. We hope these letters provide insight into how one school responded and was able to maintain a sence of normalcy and calm on a tragic day in America's history and in the days to follow.

The society would also like to thank and acknowledge the work Henry Raymond did in posting these letters on our web site.
