City honors 9/11 with ceremony

September 9, 2010

The city of Hickory will hold a Sept. 11 remembrance event Saturday.
The event, which is scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m. in Union Square in downtown Hickory, marks the first time the city organized a 9/11 event by itself.
“We right away started planning this event (after Sept. 11, 2009),” said Mandy Pitts, Hickory communications director. “We plan for this to be the start of an annual event.”
The Hickory High School band will play patriotic tunes prior to start of the event.
Mayor Rudy Wright will speak, as well as religious leaders from Hickory churches.
Ceremony leaders will ring bells during the event to honor the 9/11 timeline.
Two fire engines draped with an American flag will also be on display at the event.
The ceremony is expected to last about one hour, and everyone is encouraged to attend.
