September 11th Observance

Friday, September 11, 2020

8:40 a.m - 8:50 a.m                                                                          

Freedom Park, 101 Colonel Grenata Circle SE, Leesburg, VA 

In commemoration of the tragic events and the lives lost throughout the United States on September 11, 2001, the Leesburg Town Council will hold a remembrance ceremony at the Town’s Freedom Memorial, located at Freedom Park (off Tolbert Lane at Evergreen Mill Road) on Friday morning, September 11, 2020.

The brief ceremony will begin at 8:40 a.m. Immediately following the ceremony, the gates will re-open and the park will remain open to the public until 9:00 p.m. for those wishing to visit the memorial on their own.

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."
