The City of Bell Gardens will hold a ceremony to mark the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorists attacks on Sunday at Veteran’s Park.
“The purpose of the event is to gather together as a community and reflect on this unforgettable day in our nation’s history,” said Sergio Infanzon, Bell Gardens Mayor Pro Tem and organizer of the event. “The theme is “Healing Our Nation” under the values and principles of hope, faith and peace,” Infanzon said.
Infanzon hopes the community will come together to honor those who have died to defend our nation and to assimilate the values and principles of democracy, justice and freedom that have made this country a great nation.
“It’s our desire to pay tribute to the victims of the horrific event that took place 10 years ago and to also recognize the courage and heroism of our community’s police and fire personnel who consistently and unselfishly give of themselves and make tremendous sacrifices protecting all of us every day,” Infanzon said.
Bell Gardens Hometown Heroes, young men and women of the community who are currently serving in the military, have also been invited to Sunday’s event.
The ceremony will begin at 5:30pm and will include several keynote speakers, musical performances and a 21-gun military salute. Veteran’s Park is located at 6662 Loveland St., Bell Gardens, Ca 90201.
