Remembering 9/11: Albertville among Communities to 'Stop and Remember' on 9/11

Church bells in the community will also sound, and Mayor Mark Meehan honored the city's fire department and Wright County Sheriff's Deputies for their service in the 10 years since 9/11.

Albertville Mayor Mark Meehan read a proclamation Tuesday evening recognizing Sunday as the 10th Anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

City staff and the council then recognized the Wright County officers and Albertville Fire Chief Tate Mills for their work in protecting the area since Sept. 11, 2001.

Meehan stated the city has a couple of tributes planned, and turned the floor over to Fire Chief Mills.

“ has donated a flag that will be hung from the ladder truck as a reminder to everyone, and as a symbol to ‘Never Forget,'" Mills said as he shared with the council events planned for September 11. The truck will be parked in the lot east of the along 57th Street.

The morning of remembrance will begin at 8 a.m. and go into the early afternoon. Anyone is welcome. The sirens will be sounding at noon, along with various church bells throughout the area for one minute in honor of those who lost their lives in the September 11 attacks.

This nationwide effort was put together by Minnesota Sen. Al Franken, among others.

Do you have any plans to honor and remember September 11?

Update: St. Michael has informed us that they, too, are participating in the moment of remembrance. Sirens will sound and church bells will ring there at noon, as well.
