The annual 9/11 Day of Remembrance Memorial Service will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018, at 7 p.m. at Liberty Garden in Wright Park, just east of Hoover Pavilion.
The service is held to remember those who lost their lives during the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001, and those servicemen and women who have given their lives and who continue to serve in the fight on terrorism.
There will also be a tree planting ceremony at Wright Park in close proximity to the Liberty Garden. The first tree will be planted the morning of Sept. 11 beginning at 7:45 a.m., in remembrance of those who died from the first plane crash into the north tower of the World Trade Center.
Three more trees will be planted at 8:03 a.m., 8:45 a.m. and 9:10 a.m. to coincide with the other plane crashes.
"The planting of trees is also in conjunction with the Keep America Beautiful annual National Day of Planting which begins Sept. 8," said Corey Keller, Keep Dodge City Beautiful Coordinator. "We want to thank Western Beverage and Fidelity State Bank for sponsoring two of the trees."
The public is invited to attend the memorial services.
