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

Fairfax County will host its sixth annual 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony immediately following the morning session of the Board of Supervisors’ regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, Sept. 10, at approximately noon at the 9/11 Memorial Grove located on the grounds of the Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax. The rain site for the ceremony is the Forum of the Government Center. Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Gerald E. Connolly, Fire Chief Ronald L. Mastin and Police Chief David M. 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 11:45 a.m. in the Forum of the Government Center. The Fairfax County Public Safety Honor Guard will lead a procession to the 9/11 Memorial Grove.

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 four years ago, was designed by National Park Service landscape architect and Fairfax County Tree Commissioner Michael McMahon.
