City of Lakewood announcement.
In honor of the 21st anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001 the city of Lakewood and West Pierce Fire & Rescue will hold a public ceremony to remember the 2,977 victims lost. Those victims included 343 firefighters, 60 police officers and 55 military personnel.
The ceremony will be Friday, Sept. 9, 2022 at 2 p.m. at the flagpoles and reflective pond at the front of Lakewood City Hall, 6000 Main Street SW.
The event is one small way for us to not only remember the victims in New York, at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, but also to honor fire, police, and military first responders who serve and protect our families, our communities, and our nation, at home and abroad.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
If you are unable to attend the short program in Lakewood, West Pierce Fire & Rescue is holding a second ceremony Sunday, Sept. 11, 2022 at 9 a.m. at its Station 31, located in the city of University Place at 3631 Drexler Drive W. This ceremony will take place in the 9/11 Reflection Park in front of the station, where a steel beam from the twin towers is on display, among other symbolic features.
