A remembrance ceremony to commemorate the 21st Anniversary of the events of September 11th will take place this coming Sunday morning in Bangor.

According to a press release sent out by the Bangor School Department, The Bangor High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps will be hosting the memorial, which will feature some guest speakers, a 21-gun salute and taps, and the laying of a wreath at the flag pole on the Bangor Waterfront.

"The Bangor JROTC has been working hard to put on the 9/11 remembrance ceremony. September is always a month of reflection about what our country went through, and I think it’s always a good thing to pause and remember the civil servants who have served their country in defense of the terrorist attack, and remember those who lost their lives on that day," says Retired Command Sergeant Major John Brooks.

The event will take place at 10:00 AM.

"The memorial event commemorates the 21st anniversary of the terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of nearly three thousand people in New York City, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania. The event is open to the public."
