American Legion to Host 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony Tomorrow in Vienna

Updated 2 p.m. — The location for the ceremony has been moved to the Vienna Community Center (120 Cherry Street) due to concerns about weather.

Earlier: American Legion Dyer-Gunnell Post 180 is set to host a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony in the Town of Vienna.

The ceremony — which is free to attend — will begin at 9 a.m. at the Town Green, located at 144 Maple Avenue E, behind the Freeman House on Friday, Sept. 11. The annual ceremony — which Post 180 plans to continue hosting each year — marks the 19th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

The ceremony is set to recall the attacks of 2001 while honoring the bravery and service of first-responders, and lives lost that day.

Typical attendance in previous years has ranged between 75-200 people.

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. and current Post 180 Commander Guillermo Guillén will be giving the remarks for the ceremony.
