On Saturday, September 11 the City of DuPont will hold a memorial ceremony in honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11. The ceremony will begin at 9 AM at the City Hall flagpole.
“Twenty years ago, life fundamentally changed from what we once knew. 2,977 lives were lost and over 6,000 individuals were injured that day. Their loss is irreplaceable and deeply felt by us all. We honor these men, women, and children. Thousands of more lives have been lost during the 20-year Global War on Terrorism that followed 9/11. These are all lives that were too short-lived and that are profoundly missed. Please join us as we take a moment to pause, remember, and reflect” said Mayor Ron Frederick.
Mayor Frederick along with the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) Color Guard and City of DuPont Public Safety will take part in the ceremony. Will Stakelin, a charter member of the George Rogers Clark chapter (Olympia) of the SAR, will provide brief remarks about 9/11.
