9/11 "15 Year Remembrance Ceremony" on Saturday, September 10, at Southport Fire Headquarters - 10 AM

There will be a 9/11 “15 Year Remembrance Ceremony” on Saturday, September 10, at Southport Fire Headquarters, 1011 North Howe Street. At 10:00 the fire department’s honor guard will open the ceremony at 10 AM.  An open house will follow with station tours and activities for all ages from 11 AM. to 5 PM. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. This is being done in recognition of lives lost during the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon. The information for this article was taken from an article in The State Port Pilot, Southport, NC. Wednesday, August 2, 2016. American Legion Post 543 and the St James Fire Department will jointly host a remembrance ceremony in honor of the 15th anniversary of 9/11. The ceremony will be held at the St James Community Center at 2:00 PM on Sunday, September 11, 2016.

The remembrance ceremony is a moving and appropriate way to remember the tragedy that struck our nation on September 11, 2001. After Post 543 Honor Guard presents the Colors, Brunswick County's own Coastal Harmonizers will sing the National Anthem. Jeremy Shrader will lend his voice in song. Members of the St James Fire Department will ring the ceremonial fire bell and Taps will be sounded in honor of the victims who perished. The Coastal Harmonizers will then offer another appropriate song.
