It's almost hard to believe that it's been 10 years since our country was rocked to its foundation by the events that unfolded on September 11th, 2001. I know we at the Z Team will definitely never forget what happened that day and neither will millions of others. Next Sunday, September 11, 2011, there will be a 10th Anniversary of September 11 Memorial Ceremony held in Ventura at the Ventura County Government Center located at 800 S Victoria Avenue.
The public is invited to come pay their respects for those men, women and children who perished as a direct result of the terrorist attacks as well as the brave men and women firefighters, policemen and women and military personnel involved. The memorial will held from 11am to noon between the Law Enforcement, Firefighter's and Veteran's memorials at the government center. Free parking will be made available at the center for everyone attending.
The Ventura September 11th memorial service will include a flag raising ceremony, military band, bugles, bagpipes, a special bell ceremony in remembrance of those we lost and a flyover from the Sheriff's Air Unit. The memorial service is also to remind us that we must continue to be vigilant when it comes to our nation's safety so that we don't have to repeat this tragic day in the future. Additionally, all City of Ventura fire stations (excluding Fire Station 4 at 8303 Telephone Rd) will hold a brief gathering at their respective flagpoles at 6:40am and again at 10am to show their support of Senate Resolution 237, which would require a moment of silence at 1pm EDT around the country on September 11, 2011 in honor of the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
If you are looking for a way to honor those that were lost 10 years ago, come to the Ventura County Government Center on Sunday, September 11, 2011 for the 10th Anniversary of September 11 Memorial Ceremony in Ventura. Let's show the world that the great American spirit was not broken but, instead, lives on stronger than ever.
