ANAHEIM, Calif. (Aug. 11, 2016) — Anaheim’s first responders will mark the 15th anniversary of Sept. 11 with an inspiring remembrance ceremony that also offers residents a chance to give back by volunteering for community projects.
The 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance ceremony, set for Sept. 11 at City National Grove of Anaheim, features remarks by Anaheim Fire & Rescue Chief Randy Bruegman, Anaheim Police Chief Raul Quezada and Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait.
The event includes tributes to heroic first responders whose stories serve as inspiration as our nation remembers the events of 2001 and remind us that threats continue to test our nation.
Residents and Anaheim visitors are invited to join first responders, city leaders and the community at the free ceremony, which brings Anaheim together to reflect on a day when our nation’s resilience shined in the face of tragedy.
Attendees of all ages also are encouraged to take part in a day of charitable service and volunteerism as part of the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance.
OneOC, Orange County's nonprofit resource center, has organized a service fair of nearly 40 nonprofits representing a range of causes — from human needs to sustainability — that will be on hand at the ceremony to offer ways to volunteer and give back on Sept. 11 or in the days and weeks after.
