On September 11, 2001 the United States experienced a series of attacks on the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C., with a thwarted attempt that crashed in rural Pennsylvania. These attacks killed nearly 3,000 people and injured over 6,000 others. In memory of the lives lost, and in honor of the service provided by emergency first-responders in response to these attacks, American Legion Post 119 in Estes Park invites you to an observation of the anniversary of that occasion.
The event will take place at 5:00 p.m. on Monday September 11, 2017 at the American Legion Hall in Estes Park. Guest speakers will include representatives from Estes Park first-responder organizations: Erle Collum, Paramedic Supervisor from the Estes Park Medical Services, Corey Pass, Captain from the Estes Park Police Department, and David Wolf, Fire Chief from the Estes Valley Fire Protection District. Ceremonial observances will include a wreath ceremony memorial performed by the Post 119 Honor Guard, with Taps played by Loren Johnson.
Please join us for this important occasion. There is no charge for this event.
