This Saturday will mark the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001. The City of Niagara Falls will honor and remember all those who lost their lives that day.
The City of Niagara Falls Fire Department will hold its annual 9/11 tribute in honor of the 343 New York City firefighters, 23 New York City police officers, and 37 Port Authority police officers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their duties on that fateful day.
All available on and off-duty Niagara Falls Fire Department members and citizens in attendance will be asked to assemble at Fire House 8’s Memorial Park (located at Royal Avenue and Hyde Park Boulevard). Once assembled, in remembrance of those who were lost, attendants are asked to remain silent. A tribute will begin at 9:58 a.m.
In addition to the 9/11 tribute with the Niagara Falls Fire Department, the city’s public library is partaking in the “September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed The World” exhibit. This is an educational exhibition that presents the history of 9/11 and explores the consequences of terrorism. This poster exhibition was developed by the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and was made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities’ “Democracy Demands Wisdom.” the poster exhibit has been installed at the Earl W. Brydges location and the LaSalle branch of the library for viewing.
