Residents invited to 9/11 remembrance ceremony

A remembrance ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks will take place on the Durham Town Green Saturday, Sept. 11, at 6 p.m., rain or shine. All are welcome.

On Sept. 11, 2001, two hijacked planes were flown into the twin towers at the World Trade Center in New York City, another crashed in a field in Pennsylvania – Flight 93 – and a fourth slammed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. More than 3,000 people were killed in the attacks, which resulted in the United States going to war in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
