Treasure Coast 9-11 Remembrance Ceremonies This Weekend
The City of Port St. Lucie invites the public to join us for our annual 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony. Marking the 21st anniversary since the attacks on our great nation, this ceremony will honor and remember the lives lost and forever impacted on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Port St. Lucie Police Department, St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office and St. Lucie County Fire District will assist with the ceremonies, with a special invocation by Chaplain Alice Delannoy, Port St. Lucie Police Department.
The ceremony will begin at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, 2022, adjacent to the 9/11 monument at the MIDFLORIDA Event Center. Guests will be invited inside the Event Center following the ceremony for light refreshments. Those unable to attend in person are encouraged to watch live on the City’s Facebook Page.
We ask the members of our community to join us as we reflect, honor and remember our fallen neighbors, friends and loved ones lost on that fateful September day.
The City of Fort Pierce will hold a virtual memorial service to honor CeeCee Ross Lyles who perished on Flight 93 when it crashed in a Pennsylvania field during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The virtual memorial service will be hosted live through the City’s Facebook page, Sunday, September 11, 2022, at 9:30 AM. There will be a presentation of a wreath-laying and will have a moment of silence at Lyles’ dedicated statue located at the Liberty Garden. The public may tune in live at https://www.facebook.com/ftpierce/ to witness this virtual ceremony.
A life-sized bronze statue of the Fort Pierce native overlooks the Indian River. Born and raised in Fort Pierce, Lyles attended Fort Pierce Westwood High School and later served six years as a Fort Pierce Police Officer. In 2000, she moved to Fort Myers to pursue her dream of being a flight attendant.
This event open to the public and will be aired live on Facebook.
