9/11 Memorial Ceremony
September 11 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The North Metro Fire Rescue District, Broomfield Police Department, the City and County of Broomfield and the Broomfield Veterans Museum are joining together to commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
This year’s 911 Memorial Ceremony will include some special additions to commemorate the 20th anniversary. Remarks will be made by family members of Chris Faughnan, who died when the Twin Towers collapsed, retired New York Fire Department Captain John Fatta, who volunteered countless hours at Ground Zero in the aftermath of the attacks, and retired North Metro Fire Chief John O’Hayre and artist Sonny Riviera who spearheaded the creation of Broomfield’s 9/11 Memorial. The ceremony will also include an honor guard procession, flag presentation and ceremonial bell ringing in remembrance of each site attacked on 9/11. Special music will be provided by bagpiper Michael Lancaster and Bugles Across America, and community members will have an opportunity to add notes and mementos to a special tribute wall displayed near the memorial throughout the weekend.
Following the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony, the Veterans Museum Broomfield will host a Coffee and Conversation event with a presentation by Chaplain (COL, U.S. Army, retired) Andy Meverden on how 9/11 impacted his service in the military and ministry in Afghanistan. At the conclusion of the talk, an encore screening of Finding Daylight will be shown in the museum’s presentation room downstairs. Seating is limited, so arrive early to secure your spot.
