WISCONSIN — Governor Tony Evers has ordered that all American Flags and Wisconsin Flags fly at half staff on Friday in honor of 9/11.

Friday marks 19 years since nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks in New York.

“On the 19th anniversary of Sept. 11, we pay tribute to the those who lost their lives, the survivors and surviving family members and loved ones, and the first responders, volunteers, and other countless heroes who responded during a time of great need,” said Gov. Evers.

Friday is also Wisconsin's day of service. Evers is encouraging Wisconsinites who wish to take part in the day of service, to do so safely.

Wisconsinites can participate by finding service opportunities in their neighborhoods and communities. Simply pay it forward with an act of kindness.

Governor Evers' office put together a list of volunteer opportunities that Wisconsinites can take part in. To find that, click here.
