The community is invited to Brandon Gallery to vote on the "Remembering 9/11" art competition

FALLBROOK – The community is invited to visit the Brandon Gallery to view the third annual exhibition and art competition, "Remembering 9/11." A piece of the Pentagon will be on display that is owned by Linda Stewart, widow of Stephen Stewart, who was at the Pentagon.

Visitors to the gallery can vote 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays, for the People's Choice Award in the art competition until Sept. 8. The Brandon Gallery is located at 105 North Main Ave.

The winners will be announced at a reception at the gallery 3-5 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 9. The reception is open to the public. Linda Stewart will be sharing her husband's reflections of that day. Also, attending the reception will be Jerry Bedoya, who will share his experience. He is a retired captain with the Los Angeles City Fire Department and was one of a dozen firefighters dispatched to Manhattan following the Sept. 11 attacks. Bedoya and his teammates were assigned to relieve exhausted firefighters working on the debris pile. Bedoya and his co-workers were tasked with the recovery efforts of both firefighter and civilians throughout their seven-day ordeal.

Fallbrook Propane Gas Company is sponsoring the competition, with the help of event planner Phyllis Sweeney.

Entry fees from the competition will benefit the Harrington Family of the Fallbrook Firefighters Association.

For more information, contact Anita Kimzey at (714) 222-2462 or register@fallbrookchamberofcommerce.org.
