Bowling Green to Recognize the 20th 9/11 Anniversary with Ceremony
Community members are invited to join the City of Bowling Green on Saturday, September 11th to honor and remember those who lost their lives 20 years ago as a result of the attacks on September 11, 2001. The ceremony, organized by City Employee, Les Southwick, will include members of the Police & Fire Honor Guard and words from Mayor Mike Aspacher, Fire Chief Moorman, and Imam Ahmad Deeb, Islamic Center of Greater Toledo.
The City’s 9/11 Memorial Ceremony will be held outdoors at the Veterans Memorial located at Bowling Green City Park (in front of the Veterans Building). Attendees should arrive by 8:30 AM and are invited to bring a chair.
“It’s hard to believe that twenty years have passed since the September 11 attacks. I think we all remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we first heard the horrifying news on that fateful day,“ Mayor Aspacher said. “I look forward to continuing to work with Les and other members of our community to ensure that we continue to remember the events of this day. We will never forget.”
