Burlington will recognize 9/11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, according to a press release. The city’s proclamation calls for first responders, houses of worship and residents to join in ringing bells and sounding sirens for one minute at 8:46 a.m., which is when the first plane struck the twin towers on 9/11, this Saturday for a “Moment of Remembrance.”
The proclamation recognizes the Serve America Act, approved by Congress in 2009, which states 9/11 is to be observed and recognized by participating in service and remembrance activities honoring the people who died in the attacks and paying tribute to those who served on 9/11.
Following the “Moment of Remembrance,” the theater group Studio One will present a youth production of 110 Stories, a 9/11 tribute by playwright Sarah Taft. The production will take place at the Historic Depot in downtown Burlington at 9:30 a.m. There is no charge for admission, but Studio One will be accepting donations to Allied Churches of Alamance County.
