Colfax pays tribute to 9-11 victims
Colfax businesses on Main Street – and at buildings and homes throughout town – flew the American flag Tuesday, in remembrance of those who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001. Eleven years ago this week, 2,977 individuals – including first responders and civilians – perished when terrorists hijacked jetliners and crashed them into the Twin Towers in Manhattan, the Pentagon and in a Pennsylvania field.
