The annual 9/11 Remembrance Service is being held at Heroes’ Park behind the Carroll County Museum Sunday afternoon.  Carpenter said there will be several aspects to the ceremony.  “We will have patriotic music, speeches, the flag will be posted, and the VFW Post 1773 will be ending the service with a 21-gun salute,” said Carpenter, “We will be praying in the beginning and at the end for the community, for the county, and for the world.  We have also rebuilt the historic 1898 Spanish-American War gazebo that’s located on the grounds of the park.”

Organizers also invite those attending to stay around after the completion of the ceremony.  “Save some time to meander through the park and walk the trail that’s a 1/4 mile path,” said Carpenter, “The museum will be available to visit both before and after for no admission.  The Cub Scouts and VFW will be there and it will be a very respectful and solemn environment.”

The ceremony will get underway at 2:00 p.m.
