August 2nd is a busy day for the 10 Yr 9/11 Manhattan to Manhattan Bus Tour. The day starts at 11am at Northrop Grumman's facility where the 9/11 Bus crew will meet with the Electronics Division until 4-5pm. The bus will then travel to the Baltimore Firefighters Local 734 Union Hall and have some fellowship with the Baltimore Firefighters, Fire Officers Union and the Baltimore command staff.

Recently, the tour spent the day with Philadelphia Firefighters who also became a sponsor by getting their logo on the bus along with Chicago Firefighters Local 2 and many others.

Today, the bus was at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg (MD) and spent time with members who were on site, including 3 FDNY firefighters.

The tour is going well--lots of fellowship--and some great fund raising for the FDNY Bravest Scholarship Fund, the Terry Farrell Fund and the Feal Good Foundation.

Once in Manhattan, the 9/11 Bus will spend some time in Brooklyn with the FDNY and then meet up with the IAFF Motorcycle Group from Sept 9-11.
