DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — On Saturday, residents across the Wiregrass will have the opportunity to honor and remember those who died during the Sept. 11th, 2001 attacks.
According to Dothan Fire Chief, Larry Williams, this is a very important issue for the whole nation but particularly gives the Wiregrass a chance to join the rest of the county in showing respect to those who lost their lives in September 11th attacks. He said this event also honors the men and women who are currently serving our country.
Williams said 24 hours leading up to Patriot’s Day local residents are encouraged to participate in a stair climb which will be held on September 10th at the Dothan Civic Center.
An additional event will also be held on Saturday, September 11th which starts at 8 a.m. at the Dothan Civic Center.
“We just want them to come out and be a part of both of those in remembrance of the past and all those that have sacrificed, and also just to show that respect for our current men and women of our public safety venues and military,” Williams said.
Chief Williams encourages everyone in the Wiregrass to participate in this community event because he believes this will keep the memory of those who died on September 11th alive and going.
