9/11 Patriot Day Ceremony

The City of Bluefield will be hosting its annual 9/11 Patriot Day Ceremony to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001.  This event is held in honor of those who were lost in the World Trade Center attack, Pentagon attack, Flight 93 crash, and those who served in the conflicts following those events.  We also pause to reflect on the service of those men and women in our armed forces today.  The event is held at noon in Chicory Square.  In case of rain, the event will be held at the Bluefield Area Arts Center at 500 Bland Street.  For more information, please call 304.327.2401 ext. 2415.
