Ceremony of Remembrance draws community together

Annual observance of 9/11 has become a community tradition

 

On Wednesday, September 11, the City of St. Augustine continued its annual tradition of holding a Ceremony of Remembrance, a community gathering to remember those who died in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

The ceremony was held at the St. Augustine Fire Department’s Station Number 1, 101 Malaga Street, and drew a little over a hundred members of the community as well as a number of officials.

The city's first Ceremony of Remembrance was held just two days after 9/11 and has continued each year on the anniversary of the attack. The program lasted approximately fifteen minutes and included a presentation of the colors by the St. Augustine Police Department Honor Guard, an invocation by Larry Clay, St. Augustine Fire Department Chaplain, musical presentations by Rob Peck, and remarks by St Johns County Fire Rescue Chief Carl Shank and the program's emcee, Vice Mayor Nancy Sikes-Kline.

The ceremony concluded with St. Augustine Fire Chief Mike Arnold leading those assembled in a moment of silence at 8:45am, timed to coincide with the time the first plane hit the first tower of the World Trade Center in 2001.

The silence was then broken by the ringing of the fire department's historic 1900 fire bell by recently retired Fire Marshall, John Rayno, who rang the bell 12 times, once for each year since 9/11. To see and hear the historic bell being rung, click here.
