A 15th Anniversary Commemoration to 9-11 is set for next month at the Heartland Museum of Military Vehicles in Lexington. The event, “Remembering 9-11: The 15th Anniversary,” will be held on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. Organizers say the program will feature an interfaith service. The goal of the rememberance is to honor the victims and first responders of 9-11. Organizers hope to rekindle the memories and emotions and to share them with the youth too young to remember or grasp the full significance of an infamous day in history.
Over three thousand civilians lost their lives on September 11. Americans in general were impacted, including thousands of first responders.
During the ‘Remembrance Ceremony,’ a parade of flags will honor victims. For every fifty people, one flag will be retired, a star to represent each fallen individual. The Museum will also take items to add to a time capsule, which will be opened on the 25th and 50th anniversaries of September 11th. Organizers encourage and welcome any flag donations for the parade of flags and small items to be placed in the time capsule.
If you wish to donate an item, contact the Heartland Museum of Military Vehicles at (308) 324-6329.
