On Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m., the annual Sept. 11 Remembrance Ceremony will be held at the Great Falls Freedom Memorial. Great Falls lost six residents to the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The ceremony will honor them and all who sacrificed on that day and in its aftermath. The event will include a color guard, patriotic songs, remarks by former CNN Washington bureau chief Frank Sesno, and a candle-lighting for each of the Sept. 11 victims from Great Falls.
The Freedom Memorial is located behind the Great Falls Library at 9830 Georgetown Pike. The ceremony is open to all. Ample parking is available in the library parking lot. In case of rain, the ceremony will move to the library meeting room. Limited seating will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring portable chairs.
