Cassidy Zaragoza, 10, places one of the 3,000 American flags around Memorial Garden Park Thursday evening during the American Tribute ceremony. Dozens of volunteers turned out to place the flags at the annual event to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001 and honor and pay tribute to first responders everywhere. The event is a cooperative effort between the City of Odessa Parks and Recreation Department and Prosperity Bank. The flags will remain up until Sept. 17.
