The ceremony will be at the Heroes Bell Gardens in Celia's Rainbow Gardens in Town Park again this year, and will be a tribute to those who lost their lives that day. There is also a monu- ment that will be going in this winter in memory of that event. The ceremony will also honor all the fi rst responders who put their lives on the line every day for our communities, and we are planning monuments to them as well as the military in this area. This ceremony will include spe- cial talks from many of the groups being honored. We will also have the Freedom Riders and Jr. Honor Guard. Operation Hero Comfort will also be represented. Refreshments will be served af- ter the service, and everyone will get a chance to ring the two huge bells hanging from the arch. Chairs will be provided. For further information, please call Joanne Winer at 928-927-6551.
