The City of Aurora will commemorate the 19th anniversary of the September 11 tragedy tomorrow in a ceremony led by public safety officials.
Beginning at 8:40 a.m. on Friday, September 11, the Aurora Police Department and the Aurora Fire Department will be joined by Mayor Richard C. Irvin to remember the solemn occasion.
The ceremony will feature a Presentation of Colors and Wreath Laying Ceremony by the Aurora Fire and Police Honor Guards with remarks from Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman, Aurora Fire Chief Gary Krienitz and Aurora Mayor Richard C. Irvin.
A special moment of silence will be held at 8:46 a.m. - the time the first plane hit the north tower of the World Trade Center.
"On this solemn occasion, we will come together again to remember those who lost their lives on that fateful day,"said Mayor Irvin, a veteran of the United States Army. "We also remember the families of those who perished and all whose lives were forever changed after experiencing the tragedies of September 11, 2001."
The ceremony can be viewed on the City’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CityofAuroraIL and will feed into the homepage of the City’s website at www.aurora-il.org.
