As we approach the seventeenth anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks, remember that the Marysville Fire Department and local police will continue to honor the memory of those who were lost in a public ceremony. The details are below, in a press release from the City of Marysville.
Marysville firefighters and police officers will hold a public ceremony marking 17 years since the 9/11 attacks, to honor the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives, including 343 firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers. In addition, the Marysville Fire District lost Lieutenant Jeff Thornton, who passed away after a valiantly fought battle with cancer on September 11, 2001.
Members of the Marysville Fire District‘s Honor Guard will lead the ceremony at the Police and Firefighters Memorial outside the Marysville Public Library. The event, which has taken place every year since 2001, will include an address from Mayor Jon Nehring.
“This is a time for us to reflect and remember those who gave their lives on that day and to also honor the life of one of our own,” Fire Chief Martin McFalls said. “It is important that we not forget their sacrifice.”
All residents and media are invited to attend the ceremony. Additional details are below.
