This Sunday marks the 15th year since the horrific attacks on the United States by terrorists. In Gorgas Park, there will be a Candlelight Vigil and a Special Concert dedicated to the many Americans who lost their lives on that Fateful Day.
6pm – Candlelight Prayer Vigil at the World War 1 Monument hosted by the 21st Ward Veterans Association. Our Police and Fire Departments will also be honored.
7:15pm – Hooligans Irish Band Concert.
Note: Since 2001 – on September 11th a
Memorial Service and a Concert has been held in Gorgas Park. The purpose has been two-fold.
One- we remember the innocent victims who were killed on that day in New York City, in Washington and in a field in Pennsylvania. Those who died so needlessly live in our memories today. We do not forget.
Second – hosting a concert is an affirmation of the American Spirit. We celebrate in Gorgas Park as free men and women our rights and freedoms. We endure as strong as ever as a nation since the attacks in 2001.
Please come together with us in Gorgas Park this Sunday September 11th, 2016.
