In partnership with the American Legion, the City of Elgin will host its annual September 11 Remembrance Ceremony on Saturday, September 11 at 9:00 a.m. at the newly renovated Civic Center Plaza, located behind City Hall within the Robert Gilliam Municipal Complex.
All are invited to attend this service, on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, to remember those in public service who lost their lives and to honor those who continue to serve today. The ceremony will feature speakers and the national anthem will be performed by the Baptist Providence College Ensemble.
This ceremony is free to the public and limited seating will be available. Participants may want to consider bringing a chair.
In the event of rain, the ceremony will move indoors to the Hemmens Cultural Center, located at 45 Symphony Way.
