America's Heartland Remembers - 9/11 Memorial in Forest Park

On the 10-year anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 attack on our country, Pace Properties planned and executed a flag tribute to each of the fallen victims of 9/11. The memorial was set up for eight days on Art Hill in Forest Park. The 2,996 personalized flags gave everyone in the St. Louis area, as well as visitors, an opportunity to come and reflect on the lives lost that day and how the world has changed.

Each flag was available to the public for a donation of $40.00 to the Injured Marine Fund. Because all the flags were sold, Pace purchased and assembled 1,000 additional flags, which were donated to “The Flag Man”, Larry Eckhardt. Larry gives his time to honor fallen heroes  with roadside flag displays at their funerals throughout the Midwest.

The Missouri Friends of Injured Marines received a donation check for $100,000.  And over 70 additional charities were supported as a select group of the flags were made available to charitable auctions, raising over an additional $21,000.
