WARSAW — The annual Patriot Day remembrance ceremony is planned for 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11, inside the Center Lake Pavilion, 119 E Canal St., Warsaw,
This year will mark the 16th event. Major Robert Webster will be the main speaker. Webster is the Indiana Commander of the Salvation Army and also served as chaplain at ground zero after 9/11. Members of the Indiana Guard Reserve will be presenting the colors while local Cubs and Boy Scouts will be leading the Pledge of Allegiance.
“We just want to reach out and remind everyone that these are tragic events and we need to keep them in our minds and our hearts,” said organizer Mike Cox. “To me, this is our local way of showing support to those who perished and also the survivors, families and first responders.”
The Greater Warsaw Ministerial Association will also be hosting a public prayer at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, at the 9/11 memorial at Center Lake Park. They will meet again at 8:30 a.m Monday, Sept. 11, for a time of prayer and a moment of silence to remember when the first plane struck the first tower of the World Trade Center at 8:45 a.m.
