Roswell Will Never Forget – Mark your calendar
The Roswell Rotary Club and City of Roswell will be hosting the annual September 11th ceremony to honor the fallen. The ceremony will be moved to the Roswell Area Park around the lake at the Mike Gann 9-11 Memorial.
This year will feature the Roswell Fire & Police Honor Guard, US Coast Guard Pipe Band, Holcomb Bridge Middle School Chorus, floating wreath presentation, special guests, and commemorations. Atlanta radio legend Rhubarb Jones is the master of ceremonies as we honor and remember our first responders and lost souls. Please plan to attend with your family and mark your calendars:
Friday, September 11th @ 8:30 am – Mike Gann 9-11 Memorial at the Lake
Roswell Area Park – 10495 Woodstock Rd, Roswell, GA 30075
Do you remember how you felt on September 11th, and the days after? Did you thank a police officer or give blood? Did you have a tear in your eye when you passed a fire station? Did you talk to complete strangers or give grace and forgiveness to those you previously denied it? Did you rethink your priorities or just hug your family and say I love you more often? Did you proudly display the American flag?
Each of us was affected in different ways. First Responders all over the country went on high alert to protect the homeland. Fourteen years later, we still stand ready and answer the call.
September 11, 2001, 2,977 people died – of the fallen were 343 firefighters and 72 police officers. Their actions and sacrifice saved thousands of our families and friends. Please come pay your respects at this important and patriotic community event.
We Will Never Forget. May God bless you, our great state of Georgia and the United States of America.
