Fairfax County to Observe Five-Year Anniversary of Sept. 11

Fairfax County will host its fifth annual 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony on Monday, Sept. 11, at 9 a.m. at the 9/11 Memorial Grove. Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Gerald E. Connolly, Fire Chief Michael Neuhard and Police Chief David Rohrer are scheduled to deliver remarks reflecting upon the events of Sept. 11, 2001. The public is invited to attend.

Those attending should gather by 8:45 a.m. in the Forum area of the Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax. The Fairfax County Public Safety Honor Guard will lead a procession to the 9/11 Memorial Grove located on the grounds of the Government Center.

The Fairfax Jubil-Aires will perform patriotic music before and during the ceremony, and refreshments will be served in the Forum immediately before the ceremony. The Fairfax County 9/11 Memorial Grove Garden, which was unveiled three years ago, was designed by National Park Service landscape architect and Fairfax County Tree Commissioner Michael McMahon.

The rain site for the ceremony is the Forum. The regularly scheduled meeting of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will follow the ceremony at 9:30 a.m. in the Board Auditorium.
