Reno, Nev. (Fox 11 & News 4) —
A memorial was held in Carson City at Mills Park on Sunday to remember the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001.
Dozens of citizens were joined by Congressman Mark Amodei, Sheriff Kenny Furlong, Mayor Bob Crowell and members of the Carson City Fire Department and Sheriff's Department.
The ceremony included presentations of the colors, flag lowering, ceremonial bell ringing and a moment of silence.
The I-beam memorial is on display in the grassy area near the Marv Teixeira Pavilion at the east end of Mills Park near East William and Saliman Streets.
Carson City Fire Chief Robert Schreihans recently said, "Each year we gather together to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001. This year will mark the 15th year since the worst terrorist attack on American soil."
Carson City is proud to once again come together as a community in remembrance as they reflect on the pain and anguish inflicted upon thousands of innocent victims and their families. Also, remembering the courage and dedication of thousands of police and firefighters who rushed into burning to save lives and rescue their friends and neighbors.
