Pregame activities include salute to local heroes

By Scott Harvey

Commerce – With the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks just a couple of days away, area school districts are planning Friday evening to honor emergency responders.

At Memorial Stadium in Commerce, the Commerce ISD, in cooperation with Princeton ISD, would like to recognize "Local Heroes". Area firefighters, police officers and military, retired, reserve or active, are asked to meet on the track behind the Commerce team bench (east side) at 7:00 pm.

All will be recognized prior to the game and KETR will provide coverage of the event. Bands from both schools will combine to play America the Beautiful along with a video remembering the infamous day.
