by EMCO on Sep 12, 2012

On September 11, 2012 EMCO Chemical Distributors, Inc. hosted a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony at its facility in North Chicago Illinois. This year marks the 11th year that EMCO has hosted the event as a tribute of remembrance for the men, women and children killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

Approximately 450 employees attended along with local dignitaries, which included the local Fire Chief and Police Chief. Patriotic music was played and EMCO President Edward Polen read an inspirational poem. The highlight of the event involved a 3-man skydiving team from Quad City Skydiving Center that parachuted into the complex holding the American flag. In addition, a U.S. Naval jet captivated the crowd with a flyover. The touching event concluded with the playing of taps as the flag flew at half-staff.
