For the first time, the Smyrna Police and Fire Departments will co-host a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony that is open to the public.
Previously, the city’s first responders have chosen not to hold a ceremony but to privately remember the nearly 3,000 people who died during the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil on Sept. 11, 2001.
The event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to about 9:15 a.m. Sept. 11 at the 20th Century Veterans Memorial, 2800 King St., Smyrna near Smyrna City Hall.
This ceremony will include speeches from public safety officials and local elected officials, musical presentations, an honor guard presentation and the laying of a wreath at the memorial.
