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.
