Wheaton to host Sept. 11 Remembrance Ceremony
On Monday, Sept. 11, the City of Wheaton invites the community to attend a ceremony of remembrance in Memorial Park, 225 Karlskoga Ave.
Starting at 10 a.m., the annual September 11 Remembrance Ceremony will honor the individuals our community lost in the 2001 attacks and the military conflicts that followed. It also will honor all those who serve to protect our community, including the Wheaton police and fire departments and all military personnel.
This year's ceremony will include a welcome by Mayor Philip Suess, the Wheaton police and fire departments, Wheaton Municipal Band musicians, participants from Wheaton College, bagpiper Mike O'Donnell, and Pastor Josh Moody from College Church.
The ceremony will take place in front of the park's Veterans Memorial, located at the north end of the park (weather permitting).
We look forward to joining together as a community to remember all those we lost and honor those who sacrifice their lives to protect our community and our nation.
