Officials from the City of Marysville and the Marysville Fire District will hold their annual ceremony commemorating the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The ceremony is open to the public.

"It's important for the city as a community to remember those who risk their lives everyday for the good of the public," said Connie Mennie, Marysville communications officer.

"In Marysville this has become an annual tradition to gather," she said.

This will be the 15th year since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

The program will be held on Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Police and Firefighters' Memorial in front of the Marysville Public Library at 6120 Grove St.

The event will begin at 8:30 a.m.

It includes an invocation, remarks by Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring and a bell ceremony honoring first responders who perished in the World Trade Center attacks.

The date has additional meaning for the Marysville Fire District. "One of our own passed away on the same day," said Mennie.

The late Marysville Fire Lt. Jeff Thornton lost his life to cancer on the same day. Many of his family and colleagues attend the event each year to pay respects to Thornton and honor his memory.
