VERONA – The city of Verona will mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with a special Patriot Day observance honoring all local first responders.
The “Hour of Honor and Recognition” will be from 3 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at the south end of College Street in Verona.
Special tribute also will be expressed to those who gave their lives while responding to the tragedy 10 years ago, as well as Verona residents who have given their lives in the line of duty.
“The city of Verona is very proud to honor all first responders and their families on this very special day,” said Verona Mayor Bobby Williams. “We encourage all citizens of Northeast Mississippi to attend.”
Organizers ask that those in attendance wear red, white and blue. After the “Hour of Honor and Recognition,” refreshments will be served at The Blue Moon Cafampé.
In case of inclement weather, the activities will take place at the Verona Fire Department.
