Annual Remember 9/11 Ceremony

The Exchange Club of Mesquite invites all residents and visitors to pause with us on Friday, September 11, at 6:30 PM on the lawn in front of Mesquite City Hall to remember and reflect on the tragic events from 14 years ago, when approximately 3000 people lost their lives – ordinary people doing ordinary things, and extraordinary people giving their last sacrifice to save as many as they could.

As part of last year’s ceremony, Police Chief Troy Tanner and Fire Chief Kash Christopher hung a wreath in memory of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Courtesy photo.

The 40-minute ceremony will be brief, and the words will be few, but the need to join together in remembrance has never been greater. America grew stronger that day, with a renewed sense of patriotism. Our Fire and Police Departments will be well-represented, giving us an opportunity to thank them for all they do, and for all they are willing to do, to keep us safe.

The Exchange Club of Mesquite organizes this remembrance each year as a visible and poignant reminder to each of us that our Nation survived those attacks, and, although still under attack both here and around the world, we continue to survive and to thrive as we reassert our allegiance to and love for America.

Join us at 6:30 p.m., just before sundown, on Friday, September 11 in the lawn in front of City Hall. Please bring your children and bring your neighbors. Chairs will be available or feel free to bring your own.
