In observance of September 11, the Little Rock office will have a Flag Ceremony at the Center Street entrance to the Stephens Building.

The program will include one minute of respect and reflection at the time of the disaster and then the lowering of the flag to half-staff. A final tribute will be led by Pat Walsh, Corporate Security Director.
There will be a fire truck, paramedic van and police car on site symbolizing the lives that were lost on that tragic day.
