By frhayes | September 8, 2009

September 11, 2009 marks the 8th anniversary of the tragic event that unfolded in New York City, in 2001.  To recognize this date, the Long Beach Police and Fire Departments will once again host the annual 9/11 Memorial Ceremony adjacent to City Hall. The event will begin promptly at 9:00A.M.  It is advisable to arrive early.  The event will feature the pledge of allegiance, a moment of silence and the placing of wreaths at the base of the memorial.  There will be a bugler who will play “Taps” followed by a bagpiper on site that will play “Amazing Grace” to conclude the ceremony.  No speeches will be given. The event will be held at the Police and Fire Memorial next to City Hall, on Chestnut Street near the intersection of West Broadway.
