“This year finds us remembering the 9/11 attack on our nation,” the historical society said in a news release. “We will be having a short program including Hillsboro Boy Scout Troop 171 leading a flag ceremony.”

The event’s traditional menu will include ham and bean soup, cornbread muffins, cole slaw, hot dogs and coneys. Cake, cookies and drinks will be included. A freewill donation will be accepted.
