­­For Immediate Release: September 4, 2020

The City of Alexandria invites the public to view a virtual remembrance ceremony on Friday September 11, to mark the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The annual ceremony will be prerecorded to avoid a large gathering and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The virtual ceremony will honor those who died and pay tribute to those who fearlessly responded and gave their lives to save others. The ceremony video will be available on Friday, September 11, at alexandriava.gov.

The ceremony will feature remarks from Mayor Justin Wilson, City Manager Mark Jinks, and representatives from the Fire Department, Police Department, and Sheriff’s Office. The tribute will also include the “Return to Quarters” bell-ringing ceremony.
