The City of White Plains has planned two opportunities for residents to reflect, honor and remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001.
Both ceremonies will be held on Tuesday, starting with an 8 a.m. ceremony at Liberty Park on Lake St. A flag raising, wreath laying and words of remembrance are expected in the park, the site of the City's permanent 9/11 memorial.
A second ceremony is scheduled for 12 p.m. at Renaissance Plaza downtown. This event is expected to honor our nation's service men and women and to celebrate the strength of our nation. The event will include a musical performance, a moment of silence and readings.
Several events are also scheduled throughout the county for those interested in volunteering this week.
