City Commemorates 9/11 Attacks With 'Moment Of Remembrance'
This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a day that changed America forever. On Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011 at 10 a.m. the City of Santa Clarita City Council invites community members to join local, state and national leaders in a minute of silence titled the "Moment of Remembrance" to pay tribute to the nearly 3,000 Americans who lost their lives.
“We encourage the entire community to participate in the national 'Moment of Remembrance' in honor of the men and women who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001,” Mayor Marsha McLean said. “This countrywide effort is a symbol of our nation’s continuous solidarity and patriotism, both of which will never waver.”
