Special activities are planned September 11th at the State Historical Building for what organizers are calling “American Spirit Day.” Sarah Oltrogge of the State Historical Society says the purpose of the day is to commemorate the events of a year ago and celebrate the feelings of patriotism and the new sense of community that have been an outgrowth of the attacks. Oltrogge says the planned events will remind folks of what they thought and felt the day of the terrorist attacks. Free events are scheduled from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on September 11th. Several plays will be performed throughout the day and students will gather to create a collage on a banner that’ll be carried in an evening parade through downtown Des Moines.
