 Alexandria Hosts 9-11 Remembrance Ceremony

The City of Alexandria invites the public to a remembrance ceremony for the 12th anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001, on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, at 10 a.m. in Market Square (301 King St.). The purpose of the commemoration is to give thanks and pay tribute to those who responded on 9-11 without fear, acted without hesitation, and gave their lives to save others.

The ceremony, sponsored by Alexandria’s public safety departments, will feature remarks from Alexandria Mayor William D. Euille, Alexandria Sheriff Dana Lawhorne, Police Chief Earl Cook, and Fire Chief Adam K. Thiel. The tribute includes the “Return to Quarters” bell-ringing ceremony, featuring representatives from Fire, EMS, Police, and the Sheriff’s Office.
