ST. CHARLES – The city of St. Charles will hold a 9/11 remembrance ceremony at 7:30 a.m. Sept. 11 at the Fire Dept. Memorial Monument, 2 E. Main St.

Everyone is invited to come together as a community to honor the first responders who put duty before self and remember those who lost their lives that day.

“We hold remembrance ceremonies because it is our privilege to do so,” said St. Charles Fire Chief Joe Schelstreet said in a news release from the city. “In this case, we honor 343 firefighters and 60 police officers who paid the ultimate price without thinking of the consequences. Let us take a few brief moments and honor their devotion and their absolute commitment to putting other people ahead of themselves.”

The ceremony will begin with the posting of the colors, followed by remarks from speakers, firefighter’s prayer, placing the memorial wreath, ringing of the fire bell, gun salute and Taps performance.
