Stockbridge To Hold September 11th
Remembrance Ceremony
  
Stockbridge, Georgia- September 5, 2019- The City of Stockbridge will host its Annual September 11th Remembrance Ceremony on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 8 am at Stockbridge City Hall located at 4640 North Henry Boulevard in Stockbridge, Georgia. The public ceremony will be hosted by Stockbridge Mayor Anthony S. Ford, a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces. The City of Stockbridge has partnered with the Stockbridge High School Navy JROTC, the Henry County Police Department, the Henry County Fire Department and the Henry County Sheriff's Office to memorialize the victims who lost their lives during the violent terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Stoneycreek Township.

The keynote speaker for the ceremony is Stephanie Dawson, a witness to the attack on the New York World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Dawson is a Senior Program Manager at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Executive Officer at the 369th Corps Support Battalion. Stockbridge invites all members of the community to attend the Wednesday ceremony.  

 
"The City of Stockbridge is grateful to give honor and respect to those impacted by the infamous September tragedy," said Stockbridge Mayor Anthony S. Ford. "May we never forget that solemn day in 2001. Our nation was united against the hideous attacks on thousands of innocent Americans. Our annual remembrance ceremony will give proper respect to those who lost their lives and those first responders who stood courageous to help in the time of need.  Our nation remains strong." 

Because the attacks on September 11, 2001 began around 8:30 am EST and ended around 11 am EST, the intersection of North Henry Boulevard and East Atlanta Road will be closed off periodically throughout the morning in remembrance. Attendees should park at Stockbridge City Hall and meet in front of the government building. Parking is free for all attendees. 
 
Stockbridge will celebrate 100 years of cityhood in 2020. The City of Stockbridge continues to strive to be the most progressive business and family oriented community in Metropolitan Atlanta with a strong focus on enhanced quality of life initiatives which promote a sustainable "live, work, play" environment. The City of Stockbridge believes that people are the most valuable asset in delivering services to all citizens.
