Annual Ceremony of Remembrance

draws community together to remember 9/11

Annual observance of 9/11 has become a community tradition

On Thursday, September 11, the City of St. Augustine will continue 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 will be held at the St. Augustine Fire Department’s Station #1, 101 Malaga Street, starting at 8:30am The public is invited and encouraged to attend and participant in the brief ceremony.

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 will include a presentation of the colors by the St. Augustine Police Department Honor Guard, an invocation by Officer Roy Smith of the St. Augustine Police Department, and brief remarks by Joe Boles, St. Augustine Mayor; Carl Shank, Fire Chief, St. Johns County Fire Rescue; and JC Costeira, Fire Chief, St. Augustine Fire Department. There will also be two musical selections by Ed Purtill, Engineer, St. Augustine Fire Department, including The Battle Hymn of the Republic.

The ceremony will conclude with 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 will then be broken by the ringing of the fire department's historic 1900 fire bell 13 times, once for each year since 9/11.
