Cambria’s Sons of American Legion Post No. 432 invites the public to join in remembering the 400 first-responder emergency personnel died following the attacks on America in 2001 at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the Veterans Memorial Flag Stand at 1000 Main Street.
This year’s event is dedicated to the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshot Crew firefighters who died June 30 while battling the Yarnell Hill Fire northwest of Phoenix, Ariz. The short, speechless ceremony is to include a solemn remembrance and the presence of local first responders, there to represent and honor their counterparts who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
A free barbecue (burgers and hot dogs, plus a salad bar by the Legion’s Ladies Auxiliary) will follow the memorial.
