The City of Alexandria invites the public to a remembrance ceremony for the tenth anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001 on Friday, September 9, at noon in Market Square (301 King St.).

The purpose of the hour-long 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 L. 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.
