“The 24 hours immediately leading up to the event we are going to have local first responders carry the American flag up and down the stairs in the Civic Center arena for a full 24 hours, in ten-minute shifts, just to pay homage to those that lost their lives in the tragic event,” Dothan Community Relations Officer, Vincent Vincent said.
On Saturday, September 11, 2021, the event will begin at 8 a.m. at the Dothan Civic Center.
The public is welcome to come out and honor those who lost their lives on that infamous day.
