Joe and Linda
Our event this weekend is named to recognize two SCCA members who were lost on 9/11. Linda Gronlund and Joe DeLuca were two very active SCCA members who were flying to San Francisco aboard United Airlines Flight 93 that morning. Linda was a twenty year member who was then Flag Marshal for NNJR. Joe, also a twenty year member, was the creator of “The Adventures of Raymond the Cat.” Joe had been a rally driver, solo competitor and racer. He had held various regional positions. Their flight was among the four planes hijacked by the terrorists that morning, but was the only one which did not achieve its intended target. When the passengers and crew attempted to retake control of the aircraft from the hijack terrorists, it was flown into the ground in rural Shanksville, PA.
Memorials have been established at all three locations where hijacked aircraft were crashed on 9/11. The beautiful memorials in lower Manhattan and at the Pentagon are fully funded and construction is complete in NY and VA. The Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA honors our friends who were passengers on the doomed flight on that most fateful day.
