Sept. 11 commemoration

On Sunday, Sept. 11, the community will come together to remember during a 9/11 Commemoration at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park. The civil ceremonies will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the worship service will begin at 10:30 a.m.

According to Beaufort City Councilwoman Donnie Beer, the civil ceremony will include a number of local, county and military dignitaries. There will also be two speakers: Phillip Woody, of the Red Cross, who was in New York on 9/11; and Teri Maude, whose husband lost his life when the Pentagon was hit.

A number of musical groups and singers will perform, including Riverview Charter School and the Naval Hospital choir. The Exchange Club of Beaufort will also recognize the firefighter and law enforcement officer of the year.

The event is sponsored by the city of Beaufort and more than 20 different local houses of worship.
