A ceremony is set this weekend in Brighton to honor the lives lost in the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
The Brighton Area Fire Authority will host its annual 9/11 remembrance ceremony on Sunday, September 11th at 9am. Residents are invited to join the department in commemorating the victims from that day, with special emphasis on the more than 400 first responders who lost their lives.
The ceremony will be held at Station 34, which serves as the fire department headquarters, located at 615 West Grand River in downtown Brighton.
A memorial built around a piece of steel from one of collapsed towers of the World Trade Center is located there.
Seating at the ceremony is provided up to 300, but the public is encouraged to bring lawn chairs to the outdoor observance to address overflow. Limited parking will be available at the memorial for handicap, additional parking is available in the lots adjacent to the memorial.
