[ARCHIVED] City to commemorate 20th anniversary of 9-11 - Saturday, September 11th

The City of Nassau Bay will commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9-11 this Saturday, September 11th beginning with a Remembrance March by Nassau Bay first responders and city staff throughout the City of Nassau Bay. 
The March will begin and end at the Nassau Bay Fire & EMS Station located at 18295 Upper Bay Road. The route map for the march is included below and details specific stops along the route. Throughout the City, the marchers will pause at select locations along roadways including Martinique Drive, Barbuda Lane, Saxony Lane, and Point Lookout Drive. 
Residents and the public are invited and encouraged to come out and see the marchers along the route and to reflect as a community on the events of 9-11 during the pauses in the March. Many of the marchers will be wearing bunker gear and SCBAs in tribute to the first responders who bravely made their way up the thousands of stairs of the World Trade Center on 9-11. 
At the conclusion of the March, there will be a short ceremony at the station, and the lobby of the station will be open to the public. A support beam recovered from the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center is prominently displayed in the lobby of the station as a dedication to all emergency responders with a special remembrance to those who perished as a result of the terrorist attacks. The public is invited to stop by to see the support beam in person on this special anniversary. This event is free and open to the public.
