ROANOKE, VA – The City of Roanoke will host a regional 9/11 Five-Year Anniversary Memorial Service on Sunday evening, Sept. 10, at 7 p.m. Neighboring localities have also participated in the planning of this event including the City of Bedford, the Town of Vinton, and the counties of Bedford, Botetourt, Franklin and Roanoke.

The unique memorial service will be held in downtown Roanoke in Market Square, in front of the Market Building on Campbell Avenue. In case of rain, the event will be held in nearby Mill Mountain Theatre. The event’s theme will be “In Remembrance … Not Forgotten,” and its program will include choral and solo music coordinated by David Wiley, Music Director and Conductor of the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra, and an address by 6th District Congressman Bob Goodlatte.

Firefighting apparatus from all the participating localities will be on display beginning at 4 p.m. on streets near Market Square. City of Roanoke Fire Station No. 1 at 13 Church Avenue will be open for tours, and there will be a military flyover at the event.

For more information on the memorial service, contact Sharon Mougin in the City Manager’s Office at 853-6019.
