Manchester’s annual Patriot Day ceremony was held Sunday and again was hosted by the American Legion Gold Star Post 78 of Manchester.
On Sept. 11, 2001, terrorism hit America. After the tragic events and the loss of many lives, the American Legion encouraged all posts to sponsor an event to recognize and honor their local first responders. Many posts around the country have stopped their event, but this is the 11th year that this ceremony has been held in Manchester. The ceremony not only remembers those events on Sept. 11, 2001, but it also recognizes city and county law enforcement, fire department and other emergency personnel.
A special memorial was also held for the first responders who died during the year.
