9/11 Ceremonies in Manchester and Tullahoma

The American Legion Gold Star Post 78 in Manchester will be hosting the annual Patriot Day ceremony on the square in Manchester on Monday, Sept 11. The event will begin at 11am. The American Legion will be honoring local first responders as well as the many who died on 9-11-2001.
The American Legion members invite everyone to come to square for the ceremony. They will be presenting plaques to deserving first responders.

The Tullahoma Fire Department (TFD) is pleased to announce that Monday morning, September 11, the TFD will host a commemoration to honor those lost on 9/11. The community is invited to attend at Fire Hall 1, 613 South Jackson Street, 7:30 a.m.
“It has been sixteen years since this tragic event. We won’t remember all who lost their life that day, including the first responders,” said Richard Shasteen. “They must have realized they were in danger of losing their lives, but they kept charging up the stairs.”
The Patriot Day event will feature brief remarks from Chief Richard Shasteen and Mayor Curlee. Additionally, there will be music and the TFD Color Guard will raise the flag to half staff.
The Fire Department Honor Guard will lower the flag at the Fire Station to half-mast. A moment of silence will be observed, the time the first attack occurred in New York City, and the bell on the 1936 Dodge fire truck will be rung in a 3-4-3 sequence to honor the 343 firefighters who perished in the line of duty.
Fire Chief Richard Shasteen invites the public to join the firefighters as they remember the thousands of innocent victims who died that day in New York, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon, and pay tribute to their fellow fallen firefighters, police officers, first responders and citizens who acted selflessly to save the lives of others.
The ceremony begins at 7:30am.
