LC Valley remembers 9/11 with annual Memorial Procession | Community Spirit
Firefighters and law enforcement officers from throughout the region will be taking part in the annual September 11th Memorial Procession in the Lewis-Clark Valley tomorrow. The procession is held each year to remember firefighters and officers who "are all willing to give, to save and preserve life."
The silent emergency vehicle procession will leave Asotin at about 5:30 tomorrow afternoon and proceed through the L-C Valley past local fire departments for a flag lowering. The procession will arrive at Lewiston's Pioneer Park at about 6:45 p.m.; officials and community members will join together for a tribute to honor those who perished on September 11, 2001.
From Lewiston Fire Department:
The fire service has embraced the phrase, We Will Never Forget, and it remains central in our tribute to those Firefighters who answered their final alarm. The remembrance will encompass the following:
- Presentation of Colors/Pledge of Allegiance
- Welcome Striking of the Bell
- Moment of Silence
- Lewiston Firefighters Pipes and Drums
- Refreshments & Community Time at Pioneer Park
We ask that everyone who can attend do so, to honor those who have passed in courage.
