Starting September 11, 2019 | Explore Warren

 

Starting September 11, 2019

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” - Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in 2002 (photo of the Patriot Day ceremony last Sunday at Warren County 9-11/Emergency Services Memorial)

As we take a moment to pause and reflect on this somber anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, the quote above resonates. Time is precious, and we should spend it wisely. If you choose to spend some of it exploring Warren County, below you will find something for everyone, including a few unique festivals. Summer is not over yet - neither officially, nor in our hearts - so we encourage you to embrace the outdoors in any way you wish.

A warm welcome to all new Wanderers who popped in the Explore Warren tent at Victorian Days last weekend. Happy Wanderings!
