Two weeks from today, an event commemorating the 10th year anniversary of 9/11 will be held this year at the Turlock Fire Department Station 1.
The City of Turlock on behalf of the Citizens of Turlock in cooperation with Turlock Police Department, Turlock Fire Department & local community groups will be having a remembrance ceremony in respecting the men, women and children who lost their lives or were injured on September 11, 2001.
The public is invited to join in the remembrance. The ceremony will begin at 8:46am sharp on Sunday, September 11, 2011, to coincide with the time that the first plane struck the first building on 9/11.
Organizers ask that people please arrive prior to 8:30am at the Turlock Fire Department Station #1, where the event will take place.
The keynote speaker will be John McParland, who has spent 25 years with the Oakland Fire Department, involved with emergency resource responses including Hurricane Katrina.
At a previous City Council Meeting, Turlock Police Captain Rob Jackson credited Chief Gary Carlson, Lieutenant Ron Reid, and community member Don Jeffreys, for all of the hard work they put into the event.
“I’m sure it will turn out to be a wonderful event, and I encourage everyone to be there if they can,” said Captain Jackson.
