The American Legion Post 795 of South Lake Tahoe invites everyone to a commemorative ceremony to honor the innocent victims and first responders of September 11, 2001. The ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 11, at the American Legion Hall (2748 Lake Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe, Calif). Refreshments will be served.

American Legion Posts across America are encouraging their communities to attend these ceremonies to ensure that the innocent victims and first responders lost that day are never forgotten.

“We must not forget all of those who gave their lives for this great country,” Post Commander Matthew Panks said.

The ceremony will also recognize emergency service personnel, including firefighters and law enforcement, who have remained strong throughout the attack on America and who have upheld the honor of patriotism.

“This ceremony will not only honor those who have died, but those who live and continue to fight for the freedom of this great nation,” Panks said. “As a unified nation, we must remain committed to supporting the young men and women of our armed forces as they serve with honor and courage.”
