Memorial Flag to Fly for 56 Minutes on Thursday at Lobero Theatre

Public invited to experience Spirit of ’76 Association's Flag Day display honoring 9/11 victims

The all-volunteer Spirit of ’76 Association announced Monday that after a two-year hiatus, Santa Barbara’s 30-foot-by-60-foot Memorial American Flag will be displayed on the back wall of the Lobero Theatre on Thursday for Flag Day.

It will be flown from the back wall of the building for 56 minutes, the same amount of time it took for the South Tower of the World Trade Center to collapse during the attacks against the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

This reflective moment will take place from 12:30 p.m. until 1:26 p.m. Thursday to honor the victims of 9/11 and all those who have given their lives in service to this country.

The public is invited to walk, bicycle or drive down Anacapa Street toward East Canon Perdido Street during those 56 minutes on Flag Day to observe the Memorial Flag.

— Paul Lamberton is the president of the Spirit of ’76 Association.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
