On Wednesday, September 11 beginning at 8:45 a.m., Macon-Bibb County will remember the 2001 terrorist attacks and honor the first responders that protect our city and country on a daily basis. The Ceremony – sponsored by the Macon-Bibb Law Enforcement Foundation – will be held at Public Safety Memorial Park on Mulberry Street in Downtown Macon-Bibb.
“Each year, we mark the anniversary of these tragic events by honoring the men and women who gave their lives to protect our community, as well as remember and honor the people who lost their lives during and after the attacks on 9/11,” says Warren Selby. “We will never forget.”
There will be a Presentation of Colors by the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office and Macon-Bibb County Fire Department Honor Guard. Roses will be placed on the Memorial by representatives from the Fire Department and Sheriff’s Office as a symbol that Macon-Bibb will never forget the sacrifice made by these individuals in service to the community. A wreath will be placed at the Memorial to remember those that lost their life on 9/11 and to honor all men and women in public safety. Bagpiper Don Bray will play “Amazing Grace” before the Georgia State Patrol conducts a flyover.
