The Cumby Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting a Memorial Walk Saturday, to pay tribute to the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11. The 3.43 mile walk will begin at the CYSA fields and travel east on FM 499, making the loop down the north Interstate 30 service road, then turn on Frisco Street (FM 275) and end at CVFD Station 11, 101 West Main Street, across from City Hall in Cumby.
No sign-up, registration needed, or money is needed for any who wish to participate in the Memorial Walk on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the nation. All that’s needed is time to reflect and a willingness to come together with others.
Any who would like to walk with the Cumby VFD members are welcome, as are any who’d like to stand along the route to show support for the tribute and the effort to ensure they are never forgotten. The walk will begin at the CYSA Field Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021, at 7:46 a.m. the time the first of the World Trade Center twin towers was struck by a plane. Those who’ve never been to the Cumby YSA Field, should be able to find it by typing in 45PJ+GX Cumby, Texas to Google Maps or plug n the GPS coordinates: 33°08’10.7″N 95°49’03.2″W.
