Flags for Martin Luther King Jr. holiday

 

This year marks 20 years since that unforgettable day on Sept. 11, 2001.

Each year since that day, Lynden Fire Chief Mark Billmire has held a remembrance ceremony and recited the sequence of events and the number of lives lost.

This year, Sept. 11 falls on a Saturday. Billmire is inviting the public to join him around the flagpole at Lynden City Hall at 8 a.m. to honor the lives lost and remember what took place 20 years ago. 

VFW Post 9301 Lynden will also hold a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony at noon at Veterans Park, corner of Grover and 4th streets.
