To mark the 15th anniversary of the tragic events and lives lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists attacks, the Town of Leesburg will hold a remembrance ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 11, at 5 p.m. on the Town Green.
In addition to the remembrance ceremony, the Freedom Memorial at Freedom Park will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. for those wishing to pay their respects individually.
Both events are free, open to the public, and will be held rain or shine. In the event of rain, the remembrance ceremony will be moved inside to Town Hall Council Chambers. West Market Street from Wirt Street to King Street will be closed from 5-5:45 p.m. during the ceremony.
The Town of Leesburg encourages residents to observe the designated “National Day of Service and Remembrance” by volunteering, donating time or goods, or simply offering a helping hand during this day of commemoration.
