Always remember this day in history, where you were, what you did, and who you were with.  The September 11 terrorist attacks of the four hijacked planes resulted in widespread loss and destruction.

Today, the nation honors the victims’ families and others by gathering at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, PA., by remembering that fateful day 11 years ago.  There will be a moment of silence for each time a hijacked plane hit its target and one for when for when the flight crashed into the field in Shanksville.

Locally, the Fire Chief’s Association of Palm Beach County will hold a 9/11 remembrance ceremony at the Christ Fellowship auditorium.  Attendees are invited to visit the 9/11 Memorial at the Palm Beach Gardens Fire Station 3 at 5161
