9/11 20th Anniversary Bug

Residents are encouraged to volunteer as part of the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. Congress designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service in 2009. It’s an opportunity to come together as a community and help others in tribute to those killed or injured on Sept. 11, 2001, first responders and those who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. Residents are also encouraged to display flags outside their homes.

If special accommodations are required for the 9/11 ceremony, contact 969-1010.
