Peoria Hosts Event In Observance of the 10th Anniversary of 9/11

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Sunday will be the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. There have been one or two stories in the news about it recently. The City of Peoria is having a big remembrance event downtown tomorrow, the day before the anniversary. Here’s the press release:

Peoria, Illinois – The City of Peoria’s 9/11 Remembrance Event will be held at O’Brien Field on September 10, 2011, from 10:00 until 11:15 a.m. This special service, which is free and open to the public, is a tribute not only to those individuals who lost their lives on that fateful day, but to the men and women who continue to risk their lives to keep our nation safe. The gates of O’Brien Field will open at 9:00 a.m., and spectators will be greeted with performances by The Peoria Ballet, Pulses of Hope, and the Richwoods Gospel Choir. Vehicles will be displayed along Jefferson Street as we showcase first responders from the military, police, fire, and medical services.

We are pleased to welcome Vice Admiral Robert S. Harward, Deputy Commander, U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) as the guest speaker for our 9/11 Remembrance Event. Vice Admiral Harward commanded troops in Afghanistan and Iraq for over six years since September 11, 2001, where he last served as the commander of the Combined Joint Interagency Task Force (CJIATF) 435.

Due to the power outages experienced in Southern California, the Navy Parachute Team (Leap Frogs) will be unable to perform at the event. The Leap Frogs’ originate from San Diego, California, and the power outage prevented their flight from taking off this morning.

CityLink will run Park and Ride shuttles from Evergreen Square (in front of Lenscrafters – 801 W. Lake Avenue) to O’Brien Field, starting at 9:00 a.m. The shuttle will return riders to Evergreen Square immediately following the event.

Everyone is encouraged to show their pride by wearing red, white, or blue to the event.
