BELLEVUE REFLECTS: 9/11 Day of Remembrance at Red Caboose Park
The Bellevue community will commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks with a Day of Remembrance on Saturday, September 11 in Red Caboose Park.
Sponsored by the Exchange Club of Bellevue, the all-ages event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will honor the nearly 3,000 people who were murdered that day at the hands of terrorists who hijacked passenger aircraft and crashed them into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
The event will feature patriotic music including performances by The Bellevue Community Chorus, Bob’s Your Uncle and Les Kerr. Other presentations and attractions include a flag ceremony by Boy Scout Troops 55 and 78, a reading of the day’s timeline by elected officials, recognition of Bellevue’s top first responders, tours of the Bellevue Cabin and the premier of Their Stars Still Shine, an original musical that honors the heroes of 9/11 as told by a parent to a child.
Remarks by Congressman Jim Cooper and Sheriff Daron Hall and other dignitaries are intended to bring to life the events of that fateful day. Tours of Fire Station 37 and selfies with the fire trucks are available as well.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase with proceeds going to the Bellevue First Responders Scholarship Fund.
Red Caboose Park is located a 684 Colice Jeanne Rd. Admission is free.
