Never forget

(Jack Flagler photo)(Jack Flagler photo)Local residents gathered on Broadway Friday night, Sept. 14 to remember those lost in the attacks on the Twin Towers on Sept. 11, 2001 and the service members that gave their lives in Iraq or Afghanistan since. Everyone who attended brought a source of light, a candle or a flashlight, to the memorial. Here, Kevin Battle, a candidate for District 124 in the Maine Legislature (top) assists Joseph Boutin in placing a candle in the ground to honor Maine‚Äôs fallen service members. 



The group of roughly 30 that attended the memorial near the Veterans Service Monument included members of the South Portland fire and police departments, city Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis and Maine Legislature candidates Kevin Battle and Jake Myrick.
