The City of Alexandria will hold a remembrance ceremony on Sept. 11 from 10 to 11 a.m. at Waterfront Park to mark the tragic events of September 11, 2001, according to a news release.

The event will remember all those killed, injured or otherwise affected and honor those who risked and gave their lives to save others.

Included in the event will be remarks from Mayor Justin Wilson and representatives from Alexandria’s public safety agencies, including Fire/EMS Chief Corey Smedley, Acting Police Chief Don Hayes and Sheriff Dana Lawhorne. There will also be a wreath-laying and “Return to Quarters” bell-ringing ceremony.

In the event of rain, the ceremony will take place inside city hall in the council chamber. Masks are required in city facilities, regardless of vaccine status.
