September 11 Observance
Monday, September 11, 2017
This annual observance commemorates the tragic events and the lives lost throughout the United States on September 11, 2001. A moment of silence and reflection will be held during the Town Council meeting at 7:00 pm.
All are welcome to visit the Freedom Memorial, located at Freedom Park (off Tolbert Lane at Evergreen Mill Rd) throughout the day. The park will remain open to the public from 7:30 am until 9:00 pm on September 11th.
The Town of Leesburg encourages residents to observe the designated “National Day of Service and Remembrance” by volunteering, donating time or goods, or simply offering a helping hand during this day of commemoration. The “Serve America Act” was signed into law by President Obama on April 21, 2009. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), a supporter of the legislation, said, “September 11 should not only be a day of mourning - it should be a day to think about our neighbors, our community, and our country."
